Poetic Interlude: the Earth

(engaging my inner poet this week)

the Earth
so easy to forget

chasing humanity's abstractions
chasing pleasures ancient evolution dictates
chasing careers modern culture values
chasing a life that a growth economy demands

the Earth 
so easy to remember

embracing humanity's abstractions
embracing pleasures that underscore connection
embracing careers that restore the planet's health
embracing a life that builds experiential satisfaction

the Earth
Mother, Father, and Spiritual Friend
