Children of Earth

sunflowers

Now this is what we believe.
The Mother of us all is Earth.
The Father is the Sun.
The Grandfather is the Creator
Who bathed us in his mind
And gave life to all things.
The Brother is the
beasts and trees.
The Sister is that with wings.
We are the children of
Earth
And do it no harm in any way.
Nor do we offend the Sun
By not greeting it at dawn.
We praise our
Grandfather for his creation.
We share the same
breath together-
The beasts, the trees,
the birds, the man.
