Homage to Mother Nature

On this day, when we honor our human mothers, it is appropriate to pay homage to Mother Nature as well. She, after all, gave birth to life itself.

While she nourishes both our bodies and our minds, Mother Nature is a fickle parent, prone to furious and destructive outbursts. She is neither sentimental nor judgmental, providing what we need but not caring whether we accept her gifts. At times seemingly cold and distant, she envelops us during every moment of our lives, a more intimate companion than human mothers could ever be.

We may blame Mother Nature for problems throughout our lives but we could not live without her. She is the essence of our being, the yearning in our heart and the inspiration in our soul.
