Gentle winds that softly blow
Help scatter the seeds to the earth below
There to be warmed by the fiery sun
Keep shining; keep shining your work is not done.
Down comes the rain
The sprouts burst through
And grow into flowers for me and you.
So bless the wind and the cooling rain
The sparkling sun like sweet champagne
Like a butterfly at each rebirth
These are the blessings of Mother Earth.
The old fashioned wild roses in my garden were the inspiration for my elements challenge doll. They require limited care and bloom profusely throughout the summer. Therefore I give you a single rose scattering her seeds while being kissed by a butterfly. She represents the earth as "Mother Earth", but it takes all the elements to keep the earth healthy. Gentle winds to scatter seeds, cooling rain to water the seeds and make them grow and the heat or fire of the sun to warm the planet.
