love for nature

If we could manage to expand our concept of family to include all humans, no all of creation,

Then we would walk around kissing trees and dogs,

Saying good morning to the sun and goodnight to the stars.

That is the truth,

All of creation is our family.

When life seems overwhelming,

When it is difficult to breathe,

Perhaps it is Nature’s way of saying,

“Come be with me.

Let me kiss your face with my breath,

Let me hold you with the embrace of my bark,

Let me whisper sweet nothings in your ear,

Let me help keep you grounded, while massaging your feet,

Let me be a mirror to show you the beauty that you are,

I am waiting,

Just for you.

Come be with me.”
