The Underground Spring

Mountains and Rivers 401

My heart was the hardened earth,

a soul filled with rocks, dry sand,

but you saw something,

under the surface, and started digging,

you told me I had gold,

but I didn’t believe you,

until I trusted, until you showed me,

the water, flowing from your heart,

and I could sing.

My sand turned,

into healthy soil,

rocks made smooth,

receiving the water, and the sun,

born again,

green began to grow,

and I was alive,

and understanding,

the Creator.

Do you know how much that means?

Forever flourishing,

from the underground spring,

and loving you, for always.

Blessings to everyone and peace!

“If you love nature, you will love people.”

Alive Again

A Man from the Cree Nation - Photography by Bert Crowfoot
A Man from the Cree Nation – Photography by Bert Crowfoot

It was in the beginning that the Creator

made everything, and it was beautiful,

all plants, and animals,

every single person on the earth,

each one beautiful,

each culture, each color,

like the rainbow.

When I see this man in the photograph,

I see the Creator’s reflection,

multiple colors,

beauty of culture,

inner strength,

connection with nature.

There is no holding him back,

he will be, who he was intended to be,

a reflection of the sun.

We cannot turn back time,

and make everything the way it was,

but we can come alive again,

flying free,

celebrating life,

singing,

dancing,

and making the world more beautiful!

Be free, my brothers and sisters,

and fly!
