I Am

That which was

Came from

What it would



I am now

Who I was

Before I came

Into the world


Proverbs 8:22-23, 27

“The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.  I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.  When he prepared the heavens, I was there…”



Mother Earth

She lulls us to sleep

We are hypnotized

By her song

That is music to our ears

And the constant swaying

Back and forth

In motion, in time


We are taken in

By her magnificence

Her strength, her beauty

We fear her

Who have been

Caught by her wrath


She greets us

For all are welcome here

She nourishes us

And she takes us to other lands

Where she will have us be


She is the water

And we the salt of her

She is the heavens

and we the stars of her

She is the earth

And we are her children


We make one pilgrimage

And that is to this earth

From where we came

To where we all return
