Ode to Earth Day

By Staff | Apr 15, 2016

The Holy Spirit is Like the Wind:

A Prayer for Mother Earth

Brilliant blue pearl

Spinning in vastness

In solidarity with the colonized

The enslaved

The trampled underfoot

We masters of the machine

Captains of efficiency

Ask your forgiveness for our denial

And indifference,

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!
