Earth, Teach Me

as the grasses are still with new light.
Earth teach me suffering

Earth teach me freedom

Earth teach me acceptance

Earth teach me renewal
as the seed that rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself
as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness
as dry fields weep with rain.
