December 4th: Creative Inheritance.
December 11th: The Creative Process.
woe to the creative mother earth
she has been given up to corruption
her new seeds die before the market and her mantle stripped bare
wracked with trembling ailments
and overcome by waters
and seething pots of fire
you can almost hear her groaning and the mothers of the earth with her
cry out cry out to our sweet Mary
whose arms have held us safe through many storms
to Mother Mary send your plea
O mother Mary comfort me
and all the wounded souls on mother earth
O mother Mary comfort me
and all the wounded souls
O mother comfort all the wounded souls
