Watching mother earth give birth to space

Updated on January 23, 2013

Earth is our mother

It dawned on me how the spiders spindled fibers

How the trees crawled upwards towards the sky

How the Owl swept through life developing its wise eyes

The tiniest insect cocooned in their sacks

Growth rates changing limbs building bones how our remains all begin

It amazed me the day the earth was born

I saw its aching labor

The day when mother earth yelled for she gave birth to another member

Adam wasn’t first of course it had to be eve

Who else could have given him life breath back twice as time deceives?

Casting a line out to sea on the top of a melting Iceberg

Witnessing Rivers rush through deep plains and fields

A great flood caused by the first ever Tsunami

Tiny tree shoots breaking ground for the first time

Blue green algae breathing our precious oxygen's to fill up our inner space

Inner space

Living is equilibrium of understanding what we see

But the things we never ever saw can change the way we achieve

Einstein with his brilliant mind

Resilient Newton and his apple pi

Under the hugest tree they both named pine

Viewing life with Microscopic eyes

piecing through cellular walls to see past the blind


Doesn't it look like Algae, a view from high up above the clouds

Giving birth to great minds


Archimedes rule oh yes he was there

when the earth was born to

How about Plato and

Aristotle they were there

Playing with their thoughts again

Stretching humanities sanity

for what could be

leading us to what could become

Great humans titled the greatest minds

of all time

But they had average spines

Big but similar heads to us all

They all were born from this earthly bed of inner space

So when the earth gave birth

She gave birth to many great heads



The head of one Cactus arm, what a beautiful sight to capture

      A beautiful piece of work my friend. I used to have the kids in science class take ordinary objects from outside and look at them in a microscope....oh the wonders they did see.

      Life is good my friend. Life is spectacular! Glad you are along for the ride with me.

      Thanks Bill, yeah I will never forget biology in high school, and chemistry in college, they both were my most favorite subjects. This planet is truly awesome indeed, and I'm simply in love with life today.

      Wow! Not only are you tech savvy, but you've got great command of the English language and you've shared an incredible poem here. Bravo! I love it! I have hippie tendencies, so of course I have to read a little poetry about the Earth. Ha! Voted up!

      Thanks TToombso8, you know life is a great deal of things all at once, and so I figured why not to encapsulate a great deal of things all at once to try and sum just a tiny bit of it up, into this poem here.

      I'm so glad you liked it, I will try to do more of this style of poetry writing in the near future for sure.

      awesome observation Mike, and i discern you are a great thinker too to be able to make the connection...and yes, i agree that the mind is nobler than the physical manifestation of things...as the fox said in the Little Prince: what is essential is invisible to the eye...great work...

      Thanks @Raciniwa for the kind words, I just tried to voice much of my deepest inner emotional connections to our mother earth, and in various unique ways using poetic verse, I hope others find it intriguing as well as you and many other already have.
