In Celebration of Earth Day
Monday, April 22, 2019
Stand in Mountain pose, hands to heart’s center, feet planted on the Earth. Wiggle your toes, feeling the grass and the warmth or coolness of the Earth. Feel the Earth’s energy be absorbed throughout your body, as you breathe deeply. Listen to the sounds around you, the birds, the wind and feel the air touching your skin.
As your palms press against each other, breathe and focus in on how your body and mind feel after spending this time in nature, moving your body and sharing gratitude for Mother Earth. Focus in on an intention for how every day can be Earth Day.
Everyday Is Earth Day
By Kelly Roper
Every day is earth day,
Or at least it should be.
We should take steps every day
to save our planet, don't you agree?
Try walking when it's practical,
And skip driving a car.
It will help cut down emissions
And raise air quality by far.
Reuse, renew, recycle,
Think of how much you throw away.
Our earth can only hold so much trash,
One day there'll be the devil to pay.
And when it comes to littering,
It's not enough to clean up after yourself.
Leave places better than you find them,
And pick up litter left by someone else.
Don't spray your garden with pesticides,
Protect the birds and the bees.
Choose natural ways of deterring pests,
That won't carry poisons in the breeze.
These are easy things we all can do,
To protect the earth for future generations.
If we continue to ignore all the warning signs,
We'll face sad and irreversible ramifications.
