Songs for Gaia-

 GAIA

(Froebenius: The Mother Goddess is the invisible

counter-player of Western Culture)

Deep blue sea baby,

Deep blue sea.

         Ge, Gaia

Seed syllable, “ah!”

Whirl of the white clouds over blue-green

   bluegree of bios bow – curve –

          cloud-gate, yun-men

Chuang-tzu says the Great Bird looking down,

     all he sees is

        blue.

Sand hills, blue of the land, green of the sky.

       looking outward

       half-moon in cloud;

Red soil – blue sky – white cloud – grainy granite,

         and

Twenty thousand square hill miles of manzanita.

   some beautiful tiny manzanita

   I saw a single, perfect, lovely,

        little manzanita.

                ah.
