Earth

Jan 29

Everything we are comes from the depths of the earth. The elements that comprise our bodies, all transformed by the alchemy of nature is drawn from the minerals in the soil that sustained the plants we consume, the plants that sustain the animals we consume. All the weight in our bones, in our flesh was from the terra firma on which we stand. The minerals come from the stones, pounded and eroded, scoured by wind, water, sun and quakes. We use the earth for a time to inhabit our bodies, filling it with light, and then, the bodies return to the earth from whence it came-and other life takes our offering, reaching into the depths to create bodies of their own.
