  • Writer's pictureOlivia Matthews


There was this overwhelming feeling,

That I wanted to visit all the beautiful sites on earth and cry,

being so close to a planet that loved me and supported me in a way

That was so miraculous and precise it would make me feel whole inside.

I could feel my bond with our mother deepen in nature,

Reminding me of the simplicity of Eden.

Call it misguided frustration

or a deep seeded separation,

but sometimes we get so caught up in doing

that we forget the origins of our making.

Exploring the earth felt divine

because there was naturally a relationship of balance

of giving and taking,

of holding out and caving.

Returning to the origins of my making

Always felt heavenly.
