Earth Dance

I forgot how to dance the Earth's dance
I forgot to drink her healing waters
I could not hear the Earth's song
tacit knowledge all were born with 
Mother Earth God made for us
and I found I was one of many
who we as society lost our touch
and created the laws of man
that form a barrier to our return
we lost our touch from God's hand
as we pretend that we understand
when we center the universe on man
we fight like hell for who is right
yet Jesus taught peace for you and me
then in a dream I began to see
when in my world God put clues for me
and I have shared all that I've learned
in this and my other poetry 
I want to drink the healing water
I want to wash away my sin
to have a healing spiritual cleanse
I want to have a pious love for God
I want to honor Jesus the Son
to give Him what's holy
I want to dance with the Earth again

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
