Blog Your Blessing : Voices

Photography by Eileen Trainor, all rights reserved.


Voices That Beautify The Earth

Voice above,

Voice of Thunder,

Speak from the dark of clouds;

Voice below,

Grasshopper-voice,

Speak from the green of plants;

So may the earth be beautiful.



Note: I do not have a source for this blessing. It is native American, and is the voice we should use when speaking of the Earth.

Thanks, Cybercelt. The phrase "grasshopper voices" makes my morning. The great and the small, all voices count.

Happy BYB Sunday.

That is so lovely. I think that many other cultures have gotten away from speaking to the earth, and it is now time to get back to that. Nice photo to go with! :)

Beautiful--I especially like these two words in the prayer: grasshopper voice. It's so evocative.

As always, a lovely blessing... and nature is a great blessing and one often overlooked by so many.

Nice photo. Very refreshing. I love the poem as well.

@sandy-I am glad you like it. I was worried everyone would think of grasshopper as in Kung Fu.

@sue-I believe we can heal the Earth if we appreciate it.

@whatever-thanks.

@kuanyin-Thanks for visiting. I liked your post on photographs.

@ddb-I appreciate you stopping by.
