A Love Supreme 2020

It is,
here and now,
a marvelous free bounty
and blessed inheritance,
this world of breath,
our most vital resource
and best friend,
master to our disciple,
and how clear must it become
for us to not only see
but to cherish and revere
this precious and fragile gift,
which, when threatened or imperiled
by a virus of novel origins,
or one circulating through dreamless racism,
snaps the threads of we-being-ness
which we all share,
We,
each and every one,
none excluded,
the mortal bearers
of light’s passage to air
and grieve,
We,
the reapers and sowers
of seeds radically spread
to grow the greening wilds
of a love supreme.
