Oh River Mom, the legacy you’ve left is more than quite enough
to fill a thousand hearts and minds with all your love of nature.
The ways in which you daily did caress the waves and grains of sands
to let each morsel know it is important
will remain indwelled in us for all the rest of time.
A deep respect and honor have you bequeathed upon the world
waiting, wanting for a renaissance of meaning of all of nature’s wonders.
Perpetual connection with the sacred and the land which nurtures all of life is sown within our hungry hearts and minds through every grain which was acknowledged, harvested and seen by you.
Thank you, Mary, for with you, through you and
with inheritance of all you loved we all are truly blessed.
In memory of you I can commit and recommit myself again
to earth, our divine providence and all that you and we hold dear.
Thank you again once more as every day as I reconnect
with waters, skies, and lands as I see for us both with gratitude and prayer.
Thanks to you for all your legacy and for the blessed gift of Rabbi Katy.
Thank you River Mom for everything. You are alive in our world and all of us.
