Gaia by Andye Murphy

             Painting: Mother Earth by Karen Koski


In the beginning, there was chaos, awaiting direction. The spirit of Gaia gave structure to the formless nebulous ether. Earth was conceived. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


Gaia is the very soul of the Earth, the primordial Mother and giver of life, birthing the Earth's landscapes, plants and creatures.

In the time before time⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I heard a call from the cosmos⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

of such illustrious beauty⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I succumbed⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

answering the call of Gaia⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

to help her seed a new land⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

where love was all⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

and yet have I to yearn for the affections of another.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
