EXCORIATED BUGS

 

Cockroaches are so often excoriated… these

gentle, highly adaptable and intelligent creatures…

designated by God as garbage removers

PARTHENON PILLARS

Birch trees:

pillars of the Parthenon

of untouched paradise

ABOVE THE INDIGO BLUE SEA
Above the indigo blue sea with

its white foaming waves

the aqua blue sky with

its white cotton cloud rolls…

seemed to the homeless man

the bedrolls at his shelter…

and to the Indian raindancer…

of a sudden out of blue space

the white woven grace

…. of the invisible god of rain

the visible face

VICTORY OVER FLATULENCE

When he ate cows’ milk

icecream

his flatulence could

 even break glass

Now that he eats

vegan icecream

he no longer fears

escaping gas.

NEPAL

If one wants rhododendron
to grow 90 feet tall
as it often does
in nonviolent Nepal
If one wants a flowery
purple mountain wall
then toss pruning shears…
in answer to God’s call

THE OMNIPOTENCE OF INACTION

If the world stops
bulldozing and mowing
zillions of seeds and
saplings will be growing.

Sometimes the most powerful
actions of all come
from refraining to cause harm…
come from doing nothing.
