    Earth Day is now in many places. As the sun sets here there are still a few hours to wait. May I ask for Metta for this place in the Universe that contains so much life of which we are all one. Interdependence is a word of so much meaning

    "Whatever preserves and enhances this meadow in the natural cycles of its transformation is good; what is opposed to this meadow or negates it is not good. . . That is good in economics that fosters the natural processes of this meadow. That is bad in economics that diminishes the capacity of this meadow to renew itself each spring and to provide a setting in which crickets can sing and birds can feed. . . these evolving biosystems deserve the opportunity to be themselves and to express their own inner qualities. As in economics so in jurisprudence and law and political affairs: That is good which recognizes the rights of this meadow and the creek and the woodlands beyond to exist and flourish in their ever-renewing seasonal expression . . ."

    Another Poem for Earth Day


    Let them not say: we did not see it.
    We saw.

    Let them not say: we did not hear it.
    We heard.

    Let them not say: they did not taste it.
    We ate, we trembled.

    Let them not say: it was not spoken, not written.
    We spoke,
    we witnessed with voices and hands.

    Let them not say: they did nothing.
    We did not-enough.

    Let them say, as they must say something:

    A kerosene beauty.
    It burned.

    Let them say we warmed ourselves by it,
    read by its light, praised,
    and it burned..
