Poem of the Month: comfort

One of my dearest and most wonderful friends is going through some serious stuff.  Heart wrenching, heavy and so, so hard.  As a friend support is all I have, love and time and positive energy.  I wanted to send these to you, may they give you some comfort or help in any hard moments to come.

My Help is in the Mountain
by Nancy Wood

My help is in the mountain
Where I take myself to heal
The earthly wounds 
That people give to me.
I find a rock with sun on it
And a stream where the water runs gentle
And the trees which one by one give me company.
So must I stay for a long time
Until I have grown from the rock
And the stream is running through me
And I cannot tell myself from one tall tree.
Then I know that nothing touches me
Nor makes me run away.
My help is in the mountain
That I take away with me.

Earth Cure Me
by Nancy Wood

Earth cure me.  Earth receive my woe.  Rock strengthen me.
Rock receive my weakness.  Rain wash my sadness away.
Rain receive my doubt.  Sun make sweet my song.
Sun receive the anger from my heart.
