IMPROMPTU #101: Earth Offering

Once for each thing. Just once; no more.
And we too, just once. And never again. 
But to have been this once, completely,
even if only once: to have been
at one with the earth, 
seems beyond undoing.

Rainer Maria Rilke


Some Earth Day love sent to me this morning by my mom via Adriene Mishler of Yoga with Adriene.  

This morning I heard a talk at the Vancouver Unitarian church by a Metis woman named Aline LaFlamme called "All My Relations." It was all about our relationships to each other and thereby the earth and nature, and how we are all relations, all connected in the circle of life. It was really beautiful. 

So in light of it being Earth Day, your prompt for today is to write an offering to the earth. <3

IMPROMPTU #83: Tent Zipper

Today's prompt: "The sound of a tent zipper."

Last year I lived in the volunteer campground at a retreat centre in Hawaii. I would often hear distant tent zippers and think for a second that I was hearing children shrieking. It was eerie, especially at night. 

What do you think of when you hear that sound? What will happen next?
