song of the earth

seed from the seed
of nothing unfolding,
how beautiful you are
small blue earth,
solitary flower opening
in the darkness
of the deep,
wooded night,
you dream so long,
so longingly
of the long-coming light.
perfect blue,
shimmering sphere,
living water,
iris clear,
you pulse
and teem with life,
in the heart
of the dead,
black void,
you hold your children
in a long,
loving embrace,
perfect mother,
perfect space,
you give your body for shelter,
your love for food,
you bring us from the seed
of the seed of nothing,
you are all we ever need.
small, precious thing
in the hand of the night,
feather floating
on the breath of god,
