Gideon’s Challenge

IMG_0332Not the Earth

you’re looking for
Not the soil
you crave
and yet each day
it generously feeds you
the energy
and stability
you need
to make it one more day
and another
until the forests
can welcome you home.

If I could spend each and every day in the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest, I think that it probably still wouldn’t be enough.  I am fortunate, and infinitely grateful, that when I can’t get out to the welcoming arms of the forest I love, there is still plenty of work to be done on my employer’s farm to keep my connection to the earth healthy and strong.
