Daily Healing Images
Each weekday morning, Morning Earth subscribers receive by email a photo/poem which celebrates a gift from Earth. For fourteen years poet John Caddy has been e-mailing healing news of the wild in photos and poems to some fifteen hundred classrooms and persons on six continents. These morning poems are archived here, with clickable thumbnails.
Morning Earth Healing Images 5.23.2013
The big Green Darner dragonflies
have pledged their troth,
and now he guards her against rivals,
still clasps tight her head
while she dips her eggs into the pond
that generations yet unborn will
enact again this most ancient rite of spring.
Note: My photos are captured instants which I use to trigger memory. My short-term memory is damaged from stroke, and this is my adaptation. These are not illustrated poems, nor are they captioned photos. These Morning Earth Entries are a unity that replays an intense moment of direct sensory experience--and a bit of its nourishment.
