What is it to be a mother?
A mother to the land, a child, a sister, a lover...a friend.
Perhaps one of the most beautiful words of all...
It encapsulates giving...loving...taking care...protecting,
The selfless act of extending happiness to another.
The gentle feminine energy spreading innocence, love, & kindness.
A coming together,
Soft yet strong...powerful,
Strong within herself,
Standing her ground,
A powerful force.
A time of intuition, instinct,
Growing a creature within her womb,
Birth...to mankind, plants, harvests, fields, mountains...all life.
A wolf teaching her cub how to hunt...
A scorpion carrying her offspring on her back...
A baby kangaroo in its mother’s pouch...
A glorious humpback whale travelling with her young across the ocean...
A sparrow scouting the land for worms to ingest into her little one’s mouth,
An oak tree sharing her form- home to ants, birds & so many others...
Providing shade to humans...
The sun rising & setting.
We are all mothers to each other,
But most of all let us not forget Mother Earth,
The greatest mother of all,
Providing us with shelter, food, a home, fun, joy, adventure...life.
She establishes her boundaries,
Stands strong within herself.
Follow her example.
