dear earth,

you are funny and wide and black and light.

you’ve taught me things about this body and mind and spirit that i claim. you’ve taught me that i am neither mine nor yours – but we are one and we are forever evolving. i am maintaining my awareness. we are reality, and there need be no explanation for our struggle, our victory, our light, our texture, our shadows… we are reality. we are truth. we are blue and red and wide like the earth. we are never-ending and ephemeral.
