She is the wings, of a bumble bee,
and the falling leaf, from a sycamore tree.
She is a blade of grass, blowing in the wind,
and the stem, from where a flower begins.
She is the starlit night, in the sky above,
and the moon, under which you fall in love.
She is the heavens you look up to, and sigh,
And she is a cloud, slowly drifting by.
She is the ocean, as waves crash on shore,
And all the world, of which you adore.
A gathering of life forms, we all convene,
For she is the universe, vast and unseen.
Always a goddess, one of power and might
Mother Earth shines, both day and night
Gaea, or Mother Earth, was the great goddess of the early Greeks. She represented the Earth and was worshiped as the universal mother. In Greek mythology, she created the Universe and gave birth to both the first race of gods (the Titans) and the first humans. (Info)
