goddess #51

rain threatens today
not the devastating floods drowning pakistan,
nor the downpours succeeding drought and fire in russia,
nor any of the other numberless disasters across the globe.
just a polite new england rain
washing clean the puddingstone,
falling on the plastic bags, food wrappers, and assorted debris 
scattered by the weather front known as homo sapiens.
in a thousand years
will we still be here?
casting about our stuff?
seeing only ourselves?
or will have learned to breathe with the body of the earth?
to see with the eyes of all beings?
in a thousand years will we finally understand with the mind of all that is?


  1. Wow indeed!
    What a wonderful year of work and sharing!
    Congratulations, and many thanks!
    much love,

  2. Lovely-thank you Joan.
