Life Defining


Life is not defined by set limitations
for life defies all prior set limitations

I see all beings as evolving
from God within God
moving ever closer
passing ever further

plant-life to mineral
microbe to mollusk
muskrat to monkey
tad-pole to personage

moving ever closer
passing ever further

until the self fulfilled finale of eternity
open ended arrival of divine destiny

(surely the time has come
never has it passed
always has it been
Here and Now
immediate intimacy of the moment)

watering seeds
pruning weeds
upturning stones
nurturing conscious fruit
harvesting human truth

I see evolution being perhaps
no more than the process by which
consciousness regains its identity

from animal to amaranth
earth-garden where angels
groom and earn their wings

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
