Dear World, I Love You – Poem by Mare

Dear World,

I love you.

I love your curves in the rivers,

The volcanoes that release such potent steam and


The waves that calm me on the beach.


I love your people, my people.

I love the givers, the good-hearted,

The kind.


I love those soul-wounded ones who have yet to wake up

And don’t understand yet.

They don’t understand how wounded they are in their

Actions that serve the illusions of the stock market and

Big bank accounts.


I love the ones who persist in thinking that energy can only be

Sourced from somewhere deep in Mother Gaia’s bones.

Their resistance to waking up calls on my deepest compassion

That is not so easy for me to find every minute of

Every day.

But I’m trying.


I love those who think that women are lesser along with people

Who look different than they do. Since I know they are soul-wounded too,

And their blindness and the thorns in their hearts are

Blocking them from knowing that we are all One.


I love the ones who burn and slash the forests to line some very few

People’s bank accounts since they too have chained themselves to an

Illusion that is so short-term.


There are so many chained to the illusions, and I hold all of them in


This is where I sit this morning. As the

Sun shines such glorious healing energies down on trees that

Think it might be Spring but are wise enough to pause their

Flowering with the freezing last night.

And the frost sprinkled on the clover this morning

Under my bare feet

Reminded me it was time for me to Wake up

Even more, also.


I hold the Love.

Grateful for the frost,

The trees,

The healers,

The Sun,

And my

Bare feet.
