Earth Day

In honor of Earth Day, I played All Things Bright and Beautiful on the organ at our Little Red Episcopal Church. It has been a cold, rainy, cloudy day here in the mountains.
The photo is of a small garden right in front of the studio. The black sculpture was created by Margaret Gregg.
In honor of today and in celebration of our precious mother earth I revised a poem I had written as an outline for a story.
Bored with the rain
She tosses seeds
Wind catches them
Creating gardens
She sits among the flowers
Sun streams  creating summer
She glides
Her long gown touching earth
Colors fly
Wind catches the colors
Creating autumn
She becomes delighted with all she has created
Twirling in a silk gown of the brightest autumn colors
Wind furious
She dare acknowledge autumn
as Her supreme season
Wind erupts
Creating winter
Hurling her crown into the snow.

She replies:
I am queen of all I see.
I am queen of the stars, moon, and the sea.
I am queen of me.


  1. Inspires such wonderful imagery. Lovely, Carol.

    1. Thank you Barb. Earth mother is an image that pops into my mind so vividly in the Spring as colors pop after the starkness of winter.
