Happy Earth Day!

in honor of our mother, 
lower our hemlines 
so that they too 
may kiss the grass. 
we raise
our leaves,
enthralled in
whispered conversations
    full of small things 
that mean so much. 
we speak 
in tongues of glistening 
jade and aquamarine 
   and we listen to 
legends sprinkled with 
agate and 
topped with gold. 
  (it's the only way we know)
we smile and 
      promise to always 
    gather under silver moons
where truth is spoken
         but never sold.
