Our Earth ~ Our Celebration ~ EARTH DAY, 2016

Our Earth ~ Our Celebration ~ EARTH DAY

May our awareness, our discernment, our knowing wise, as a community of people from all parts of this Earth, bring a renewed reverence to Mother Nature and her Divine intelligence. Let us rise above the corporate greed and impeding control... of those who ravage Mother Earth by pesticides, toxins, poisons, manipulation and GMO domination. We are more in numbers, more with endowed power, more with right intention, and must appreciate WE ARE THE CHANGE that is to BE!!! WE and Mother Earth deserve no less... all with blessings and love... Rose Marie Raccioppi

Mother Earth ~ Ravage Not

Inspired Spirit and Blessings shall prevail
There is Love beyond travail
That knowing faith within heart
From which a questing peace has its start
A vision beyond the perceived despair
So be our wondrous destiny in God's care
Light and TRUTH be they the resounding plea
Over our lands from sea to sea
Gather our thoughts and a new vision clear
Beyond all illusions beyond all fear.

Ravage not the land nor sea
Heed the echoed cry and plea
Heard in the crashing wave and thunderous sky
In valleys, plains and mountains high
Hold this Earth in reverent care
Protect our gifts of water and air
Take not in abuse a mineral or gem
Behold the wonder of each bloom, leaf and stem
Trees to flourish, 'tis bounty's call
The knowing grace of Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall
Earth, animals, a you, a me
Nurture wise and abundance be.

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci, April 15, 1452 ~ May 2, 1519, an Italian polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist and writer. Leonardo is known as the archetype of the Renaissance man, a man whose curiosity was equaled only by his powers of invention. Indeed one of the greatest artists of all time and perhaps the most diversely gifted person ever to have lived.
