the sounds of the earth

The world is busy,

hustling, bustling.

Things are always moving

quickly, swiftly.

We rarely prioritize time to slow down,

to breathe, to reset, to ground.

The birds sing all day,

reminding us that the sun is shining.

This is the time to work or play,

to enjoy your day.

Then the crickets and cicadas serenade all night,

telling us the moon is on her way.

It is time to slow down, to rest, to delight.

We can’t do it all at once

so listen to the sounds

of the earth

and she will tell you

where to focus your energy

The Gold

You are here to make,

to create.

You are here to connect,

not to perfect.

You do not have to do it all

sometimes you will fall,

but do not be consumed with worry,

or allow yourself to get in a hurry.

Simply let yourself unfold,

and one day you will find the gold.
