I am the handmaid of the earth,
I ‘broider fair her glorious gown,
And deck her on her days of mirth
With many a garland of renown.

And while Earth's little ones are fain
And play about the Mother's hem
I scatter every gift I gain
From sun and wind to gladden them.

'Flora' from 'Poems By The Way' – William Morris 1834 -1896

The image is an exquisite pastoral fresco of 'Flora', Roman goddess of Spring (Primavera), flowers, fertility and abundance, filling her basket with freshly picked blooms.

Stabiae, a popular resort town of the Roman era. The fresco was found in the excavations of the Villa Arianna and it is now at the National Archaeological Museum of Naples. Stabiae was destroyed at the same time as Pompeii, in an eruption by Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Blow O wind to where my loved one is
Touch him and come touch me soon.
I’ll feel his gentle touch through you
And meet his beauty in the moon.
These things are much for the one who loves
One can live by them alone:
That he and I breathe the same air
And that the Earth we tread is one.

One Day ...

We did not have today
We only have the past
Perhaps ...

One day

You might really see me

One day

You might really feel me

One day

Our hearts might soar

Together ...

And one day

We will be as one ...
