A prayer for the Earth by Emily Sturgill 4/23/13
Mother Goddess Gaia,
Oh Great One in the Sky,
Once worshiped as Divine.
Isis, Ra, Nut, Osiris;
Demeter, Hades, Persephone….
Gods and Goddess of old both down and above,
Hear our prayers for our little planet,
and bring forth some love.
Bring us the midnight sky, and her highness the Moon,
shining brightly Round and Full, in her own sheer gorgeous brillance.
Bring us the rainbows at the ends of the storm-clouds,
Light up our souls with sunrise and sunsets,
and the time, spent in-between.
Show us your power and glory-
led us by the example of
Earth’s joyous beauty,
so we treat our planet better and thank her more.
So we give God the Sun, a reason to keep on spinning and shining brightly-
not only for us-but our children too-or the children of others if we bear
no fruit of our own. Dearest Hecate, Gaia, Kali,-Mother Earth,
please forgive our past transgressions,
as we trample our lovely planet,
and take for granted the simple beauty beneath our feet.
The ground, the dirt we walk on is a hallowed
The Earth itself a holy place.
Let’s not forget,
the Earth does not belong to us Alone,
We belong to the Earth itself.
Remember her beauty, <Mother Nature> Goddess Earth,
not just on Earth Day but everyday. Seek out her beauty within all of us, and around us everywhere.
Observe the singularly beauty in her teardrops as the Rain falls,
nurturing our forests and crops.
Observe the Earth’s light within your own,
might and power. It is all around, it is everywhere and everything, it is inside all of us.
It is our Earth and we should respect her.
