Like Mother Earth, our skin is multilayered
and it is essential to our existence.
Skin promotes touch sensation,
maintains body temperature regulation,
provides harmful elements protection…
Like Mother Earth, our skin is both precious and frail.
Parts of us are thick-skinned
and like mountains not much bothers us –
difficult to get under the skin.
Parts of us are thin-skinned
and like sacred ground are holy veiled –
comfortable in our skin.
Like Mother Earth our beauty
is more than skin deep…
mining and deforestation
cost us the skin off our backs –
windmills and solar panels
save us by the skin of our teeth.
Mother Earth co-creates with us
together we have skin in the game.
So, if we want to show some skin
and go skinny dipping with Her.
Let’s get the true skinny
and save our skin by reverencing Hers.
