I love the earth - apr 22nd, 2017
I love the earth. Give me a big hug, you gorgeous hunk of matter. I love your mountains stretching up to scrape the clouds, and your surreal deserts simmering on tectonic plates of sand. I love your ample oceans caressing countless shores in constant give-and-take to make sure everything throbs and breathes. I love your washing rains that clean away the film. I even love your wind which whips, whirls, and stirs your skies in sweet release of energy. I love the vista views of the solar system that you intoxicate us with each night. I love your rumble when you clear your throat, the way you bloom your trees. And I admire the billions of lives you subsidize – the shit that you put up with. The silent way you scrape away again, and again, and again, and again.
Whatever this is, this crazy spinning roller coaster ride through space and time, I’m holding on tight, happy to be a part of it – glad to be alive.
