The earth speaks, mother of many voices, rising from the land, mother of plenty and longing. The earth speaks, giver of life, keeper of wisdom, teacher of those who will listen.

The earth speaks, in cycles and seasons, in rhythms of growth and change. Alive and singing, she may reveal her hidden secrets, her ancient wisdom, helping us to remember the life we have too long ignored: deep, sacred, true, vital as our own breath, as our own too-human hearts.

The earth speaks, in the voice of a seed, potent wisdom held taut in its shell, spilling out to tell the story, again and again, of life itself: how the earth receives and yields, how rain and soil conspire, how the mystery of our being continues through the ages.

The earth speaks - and some will listen, this moment joining voices with her - hands to soil, alive and giving, learning from her voice like waters ever flowing, received and shared, transforming seeds and the cells of our bodies, one life flowing in a wave through all.

The earth speaks. With what voice shall we answer? How shall we say, we have no other home? No wings to fly, no breath to live, beyond, in the wild abyss. With what truth shall we declare, that we are hers, forever? With what love, what hope, what passion, shall we call her name?
