Love, Time Traveller



Love is as global as it is eternal, like centuries of birdsong composed by Earth Mother and meant to be enjoyed by everyone; no more or less so for its acolytes being gay or straight.

Lovemaking is as natural as a flower’s petals opening up to sunlight; no more or less so for its lovers being gay or straight.

If beauty is in the eye of beholder, the inner eye needs to see the clearer; no more or less so for our being gay or straight.

 LOVE, TIME TRAVELLER

Days are getting longer
and hope is beating stronger
though its pain lasts even
longer than the joy of being
at one with Earth Mother

Evenings stay lighter longer
and love is growing stronger
though its pain lasts even
longer than the joy of being
at one with Earth Mother

This world is no stranger
to a humanity put in danger
by its own, can but look
back in anger at our turning
a deaf ear to Earth Mother

Days are getting shorter
and hope is beating fainter
though its sweet dreams
last forever for their being
at one with Earth Mother

If the world darken sooner
and its lovers hurting longer
yet hear its heartbeat all
the stronger for their being
at one with Earth Mother

Come a world darker or lighter,
we are one with Earth Mother
