Do It Now


The simple problem of humanity
is that we've built a world
- our perfect world -
so well, it hides the world
whose very imperfections whisper
the secrets we all seek.


With each inhale,
with each exhale,
with each slumbering purr and fart,
our earth speaks
the mystery of her own creation,
and our creation too.

We fumbling creator creatures,
so self important in our mimicking
of the sublime voice that breathed us into life,
and 
in our petty perfecting of this temporary place
this material space
built with expendable ingredients,
that we don't see the aging mechanisms behind the curtain
on the stage of our pursuits.



Be brave now,
dear friends,
live simply on our planet home.
Now,
dear friends
Now.

The earth purrs and farts . . . okay, all is clear now!

great post. words with so much truth. and meaning.

(too many people, too materialistic, no respect for themselves and therefore cannot respect others or the earth. sad.)

happy new year!
