The Queen of My Self


April is when we celebrate Mother Nature, Mother Earth and all Her creations and creatures. It is all about green growth and the April showers that nourishes it.

by Patricia Lynn Reilly 

In the very beginning
was the Big Mama…
On the first day she gave birth to light and darkness. They danced together.
On the second day she gave birth to land and sea.
They touched.

On the third day she gave birth to green growing things. They rooted and took
a deep breath.
On the fourth day she gave birth to land and sea and air creatures. They walked
and  swam and flew.

On the fifth day she
thanked her partner
for coaching her labor.

On the sixth day she celebrated the creativity
of all living things.
On the seventh day she left space for the unknown.
