Twin Tuesday – Eddie Two Hawks

Eddie Two Hawks isn’t a person, it’s a form of thought. I love the simplicity of the posts, along with the powerful message they bring. Eddie usually combines these words of wisdom with a beautiful photo, mostly consisting of flowers. Thank you for all the words of wisdom Eddie 🙂

Earth, Teach Me

Earth teach me quiet ~ as the grasses are still with new light.
Earth teach me suffering ~ as old stones suffer with memory.
Earth teach me humility ~ as blossoms are humble with beginning.
Earth teach me caring ~ as mothers nurture their young.
Earth teach me courage ~ as the tree that stands alone.
Earth teach me limitation ~ as the ant that crawls on the ground.
Earth teach me freedom ~ as the eagle that soars in the sky.
Earth teach me acceptance ~ as the leaves that die each fall.
Earth teach me renewal ~ as the seed that rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself ~ as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness ~ as dry fields weep with rain.
