Dear Goddess

               Dear Goddess

I remember you dear Goddess. You were my long walk on the  Pacific ocean.

You were the view from the ridge of a great mountain. You showed me your perfect beauty.

I have tried to touch your kind gifts with appreciation and concern. I love the sea, the great valley of flowers and the secret and hidden places of the mountain range.

I loved your song. I loved the whispering of dancing sea, the free land and laughing children. You taught me.

Life is my decision. To love the earth and dance gently upon her. You are our lifeblood and gift to appreciate and protect.

Dear Goddess. Thank you for the new day and opportunity to dance with the sea, to sing with the wind and to celebrate the free gifts of nature.
