Invocation of the Earth

Great Gaia, Mother of us all,
Harken as I give thee call,
Your nurturing spirit gives us breath,
From the womb through until death.

Nourish our roots with ground of love,
Drinking deep; from below as above.
In this hallowed ground we place,
Our Mother's formless, timeless grace.

The dying plant releases seed,
Rising again to meet our need.
The Mother feeds us from her breast;
By this we know we are thrice blessed,

Fractal songs: your deep embrace,
Vibrate here throughout this space.

Hail and welcome!
Blessed be.

James Curnow
