For the Love of the World

This lovely poem came to me on a birthday greeting this week and I just thought it was so inspiring for me and that others might wish to read it too.

For the Love of the World

For the love of a tree,
She went out on a limb.
For the love of the sea,
She rocked the boat.
For the love of the earth,
She dug deeper.
For the love of community,
She mended fences.
For the love of the stars,
She let her light shine.
For the love of spirit,
She nurtured her soul.
For the love of a good time,
She sowed seeds of happiness.
For the love of the Goddess,
She drew down the moon.
For the love of nature,
She made compost.
For the love of a good meal,
She gave thanks.
For the love of family,
She reconciled differences.
For the love of creativity,
She entertained new possibilities.
For the love of her enemies,
She suspended judgment.
For the love of herself,
She acknowledged her worth.
And the world was richer for her.
