The Gaia Stone

by Sr. Breda Gainey SSJA

Silent and still
You stand surveying your ancestral connections.
Once of primal star and violent eruption
Your heart of fire with birds on the wing,
Beating..............................

Ancient One, deep rooted in times past,
Your secrets of desert mantle and ice cap
Shaped in this stone circle,
Reflecting words and story
Transforming.........................

Of stardust all,
One through the passage of time
I stand now in this circle of stone
Gathered, held,
Connecting.........................

Head on stone
With whispered secrets - dancing, swirling
In wind caressing.
Sun wrapped in shadow and mist,
Embracing.........................

Silent and still now, I am connected
Rooted and grounded in deep shadow
With stardust - ancestral echo
All one, O Gaia
United.........................
