Transcendental; A Poem

Transcendental; A Poem

My father is the Universe,

My mother is the Earth,

Somehow I’ve always known this truth

Even before my birth

The wolf is my sister,

The trees are all my brothers,

My herbal friends are cousins

Because we all share a mother

If you find you can’t believe

In what I’m telling you,

Perhaps it’s just how you perceive

And what society has conditioned in you

Man may think himself greater

Than all that walk the ground,

But man is the only species

That paints himself a clown

Frida Kahlo
The Love Embrace of the Universe,the Earth,Myself,Diego and Senor Xolotl, 1949 by Frida Kahlo

 

Foolish is the man that believes he is not related to or is separate from all of creation. All things are connected. We must rekindle that sense of connection and harbor feelings of love for our fellow man and also for our brothers and sisters who call Gaia mother as well.
