Gaia’s Covenant

Sun showers mist bright rainbows cross the heavens. Smell the dark loam, rich and blanketed in a century of cast off needles. Hoary giants stand sentry. Broad spans encrusted with moss send imploring hands to worry the sky. Anchoring roots crawl across the earth grasping deeply lest ancient Titans are tempted to scale the cloud enshrouded foothills to seek the forbidden heights. Peers of my ancestors, the Fates have waited long to cut your thread.

Quiet darkness lies beneath. There is no today or tomorrow here, only this timeless silent spell. A lattice of branches, an interlocking maze that holds the storm now past, grudgingly bares secret slivers of a blue rain swept expanse.

Small beneath the sheltering boughs, the sweet sting of paths secret and past imbues the senses. Face upturned to watch the rush of tears that falls into outstretched arms.

  2. You know, I can be a little frantic and high strung…visiting your space always makes me feel like I\’m sitting in a forest with honeysuckle (my favorite) filling the air, my bottle of wine chilling in the\’s lovely. Thanks for that…If I meditated, this would be where I\’d do it.

  8. Hi Lorna ^-^Thank you for your comment : )I like your photo albums too. Especially the \’Summer days gone by\’ album(I can see you\’ve tried different things there – you did a good experiment there~ you got a good theme, close up w/ objects, scene, protraits) + the \’Room with a view\’ that picture you got a good capture there~~ Good Job Lorna. Keep practicing and you can become a professional photographer! ^__^


  9. you believe in the mighty goddess Gaia? just curious but are you into witchcraft? i am. you asound like you are so im just curious


  10. Gaia GreenWolf I\’m not a disciple of the craft of the wise (Wicca) or witchcraft . I do believe that the earth has a spirit and a consciousness. Frankly I don\’t understand how anybody can stand with their feet planted on the earth and not feel the presence contained there in.This particualr entry is actually a reference to the role of Gaia and her offspring in the traditional mythology. I\’ve always thought of trees as giant and Titans, Gaia\’s children. Here I see them still together, joined eternally. The mother and child covenant remains unbroken despite the final betrayal of Olympus.


  11. I agree with you in many ways. Gaia is a great presence and the plants and animeals of this world technicaly are her children. and by the way great site, its so enchanting!
