Alien Brothers & Sisters

Without soil, there would be no tree standing upright. Without a source, there would be no river flowing. Without a child, there would be no feeding mother. We are the children of this earth and we can only exist by virtue of each other.

For the final image of our 2021 Earth Family Calendar, Marisa imagined a tribe of modern humans walking in sync with their soft inner wilderness. Through harmonious emergence with nature, a raw state of being appeared that seemed freed from all separation.

ALIEN BROTHERS & SISTERS


alien brothers and sisters
we are here together
as earth people

we are nature’s invention
sprung from the same cell - soul
scripted a billion times
in a million different plays - places

we are every single person
divided by a thin pocket of flesh
our lungs
full with shared air
breathed for us
by far-away rainforest trees

we are both plant and animal
we are the stars and the soil
we are meant to be a planet of poetry

oh, harmony
the light of love is only one switch away
respect all living things
that fly, walk, crawl or swim

feel gratitude for everything this home brings

heaven is here
