Garden Prayer #2

Dutchmans

“Dutchman’s Breeches” – Dicentra cucullaria – Frick Park – Pittsburgh, PA

God bless the earth we walk on…
Bless the plants and the trees…
Take care of our flowers…
That attract the bees…

Put a shovel in the soil…
And our hands in the ground…
While we listen to the birds…
Sing magnificent sounds…

The air around us is fresh…
And the breeze is warm…
A sure sign of spring…
When honeybees swarm…

They visit your flowers…
Then they’ll come to mine…
Reminding us that…
Everything will be just fine…

An Evolution Manifesto

So man made bullets… Then who put your name on it?.. God?.. Buddha?.. Natural selection?.. And if something like life can be so great… Why is it so short?.. I find solace in nature… No being controls my life… No one thing… Just me… Fighting natural selection… Fighting your God… Fighting your Buddha… Fighting with me…

Who chooses who lives and dies?.. God?.. Man?.. Nature?.. All of the above?.. Or are they all just easier to relate when we attribute them to a higher power?..  I often wonder if religion is just an ages old method of making people be good… If you are good you will go to heaven… If you are bad you will get poked by red guys with pitchforks… While you burn in a pit of sulfur… Genius…

I would rather believe nature chooses… Natural selection… Only the strong survive… I find it logical… And I find it reasonable… But they are both only theories… Evolution… Creation… Neither has been proven… The big bang and creation seem similar to me… Who cares… Means nothing to me… Right here… Right now… What I immediately see…

People are hungry… People are cold… People are desperately breaking the mold… Small people do great things… Put them together nature sings… Sings a song for you and me… Sings a song from land and sea…

Life is so short… But can be so profound… Change one… Change a million… Makes no difference… Just make a difference…
