I am made from this Earth



"I know I am made from this earth, as my mother's hands were made from this earth, as her dreams were made from this earth and all I know, I know in this earth, the body of the bird, this pen, this paper, these hands, this tongue speaking, all that I know speaks to me through this earth and I long to tell you, you who are earth too, and listen as we speak to each other of what we know: the light is in us." ~ Susan Griffin
