The Earth Holds Me

by Ximena Patricia Berta

Age Group: Adult

The Earth holds me,
the Earth holds me,
the Earth holds me.

Through the darkness,
winter's coldness,
the Earth holds me.

In her silence,
stillness, wholeness
the Earth holds me.

Earth now lives her longest hour
of silence and slow rebirth.
Soon, oh soon, the Sun will dawn
and light will return to the Earth.

Blessed be this lull in time
that measures and gathers strength.
Spins and turns that cycle through
give to each season its length.

Blessed be each day now gone,
each cycle and moon that wanes.
Blessed be each life now done,
axle on the wheel that turns.

The Earth holds me...

Through the darkness...

In her silence...
