Earth Day 2014

Let us direct our desire for a better world
into the earth itself.
Each seed we plant, however small,
is a tangible wish for growth:
for shoots of tenderness,
for roots of extending kindness.
And may the greenest, most hopeful leaves
be lessons of compassion
taken from our holiest books.

*Excerpted from Garden Blessings: Poems, Prose and Prayers Celebrating the Love of Gardening by June Cotner (Editor), to be released by Viva Editions, May 13, 2014.  I received a review copy of this new book from the publisher. A full review will be published at a later date.
