Earthrise

Earthrise1

Did you see
the Earthrise this morning?
Or was it this evening?

Of course you didn’t see it.
It’s a visual image
in my mind’s eye
like a burning bush,
a musical song
in the silence,
an angelic harbinger
for a new story
in my heart.

Earthrise,
an image sent from Source.
An image sent from God
to remind me
we live in the universe –
We all live
in one sacred home.

If you can imagine it;
Mother Earth has declared
it’s our home.
How will I treat my
brothers and sisters?
How will I treat myself?

Earthrise

Earthsong – did you sense

Music in the silence?

Richard Evan MacKay

***The Swan Book…presents us with the Earth not as an idea, not as spectacle, but as a vital physical reality with its own stories, [songs] and knowledge, its own ontology.

I think in The Swan Book, Alexis Wright has written the first great novel of climate change. And perhaps the first truly planetary novel. I hope it goes viral.
