Prayers for the Earth

Canada and More 259

The farmer can often hear the battles raging

not of politics or of guns, but of broken hearts

and angels descending. The wailing.

Ear to the ground, blood pumping,

their hearts in the earth shifting their spirits

caring, making them more sensitive.

So if you ever see a farmer

with their head bowed

please know he or she,

still prays for us,

one of the few

 that prays for the earth.

Peace and blessings to everyone.

  1. My maternal grandparents were farmers. The farmer has no control over the climate only the land. They know much about reverence for the earth and prayer. – very lovely and insightful write, Nicodemas. Thank you.
