Words for "Gaia" - written and spoken by Monica's father, Lloyd Richards


If we turn from Life, we have only Death.
From the minute we humans started building fires to cook our food,
we have been aware that we must revere the source of our lives
and all life on this planet.
And we have named that source
"Mother of Life".
She is kind, sometimes cruel,
always indifferent to sacrifice
exept for those
who came in their time -
fertility rites,
the celebration of birth,
of the new year,
thanks for the harvest.
But she is capricious and aloof.
Her manifestations:
Serene, Ferocious, Willful,
Cruel, Wise, Lustful, Mysterious,
Wanton, Loyal, Scheming,
Jealous, Cool, Greedy, Dreaming.
She responds to arrogance
by witholding her favors and
sometimes by destruction.
Her weapons are overwhelming,
myriad, awesome: Winds, Water,
Lightning, Fire, Ice, Heat,
Earthquake and Tidalwave.
If we worship and revere
male gods, we ignore
Gaia's ultimate power over us.
Turn from the Goddess of Life,
and there is only Death.
Turn form the Mother of Life,
and there is only Death.
