I am moving on to the next theme in this June focus on the natural world (alongside the UK Wildlife Trusts’ project called “30 Days’ Wild”, which seeks to connect people with nature).
As before, the theme is introduced by the poetry of Genesis:
And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so.
God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.
Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.
The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.
There is so much to inspire us in our beautiful earth, in the amazing oceans of our earth, and in the plant life we share earth with, and depend on for our survival.
I look forward to posting some poetry on these themes, and please do feel free to share with me any of your own writing on this theme, or writing you particularly enjoy by other people on this theme!
