Maya Spirituality

Pedro Rafaél González Chavajay

Oh, Mother Earth!!!
Your pain beats in my heart.
My eyes weep with your tears
My feet feel your sadness
as I walk. 
Watching you die is painful
As I’m dying, too.
Every night the Moon Ixmukane
Comes down to drink your tears.
Every morning Heart of Sky
Warms your womb with the light of the sun.
