Mother Earth is Pregnant

“Walk lightly in the spring-mother earth is pregnant”-Kiowa

The metaphor of the earth as our mother is ancient-and carries deep truth if you think about it. Our bodies are literally made from the dust of the earth and our lives are maintained by what she produces, like breast milk for an infant. The ancient stories from all over the world cast the earth as mother and the sky as father, because when his “sperm” (rain) enters her, she produces new life.

Thanks, mom, for all you do.
