Ode to Earth Day
The Holy Spirit is Like the Wind:
A Prayer for Mother Earth
Brilliant blue pearl
Spinning in vastness
In solidarity with the colonized
The trampled underfoot
We masters of the machine
Captains of efficiency
Ask your forgiveness for our denial
For reducing your servant beauty
To use and abuse
For forgetting we are One with you
United in an energetic web of Love.
We thank you for continuing to love and support us
While we gag, despoil, and Bible-quote you.
Your winds and tides and torrents
Invite us to Wisdom.
Teach us to learn your ways again!
For Earth Day
