The healing poem by Alfred K. Lamotte In Among the Leaves (acrylic) by Polly Castor

The Healing

This planet will not
be healed
by powerful politicians
in big cities
who spend trillions
on a global strategy
that never quite begins.
They also burn
much fuel.
Earth will be healed
by villagers
who sing,
by backyard gardeners
like you,
who walk more slowly
right here,
who feel the green
through bare soles,
speaking fewer words,
each others anger
like mothers,
the heirloom seeds
of the heart.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

    So much quiet truth.

    To be…quiet…simply pulling weeds away from the California Poppies.
    To … let it all go…as the passing clouds………
    Trusting Truth, the Strong Deliverer, to reveal Its Creation…
    Here, now, at hand…

    Oh, my prayer!
