The gift of land

I am alive and I am grateful for every breath, every moment, every step 
These gifts are given to me, thank you for these gifts.
I am awake and I am in awe of each vision, each experience, each placed foot
These gifts appear for me, thank you for these gifts.
The greatest of all is your Gift of land 
how this land holds and feeds 
how the land through extremes extols all that can be our best and our worst 
with this Gift of land may we all deeply understand that we are held and fed as we are holding and feeding 
A Gift of land filters through my hands and I breathe and I believe .
