Religion

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Marbled sunset is my stained glass

I have faith in the sassafras

my parish is the biomass

*

to the orthodoxy of nature I am beholden

humbled by the buzzing bee in the sunflower golden

the feisty spirit of the small chipmunk does embolden

*

Eternity I find

in rocky shore line

and how stars align

*

Nature’s dogma guides

her rules I abide

through each moon and tide

*

Scripture in leaf veins

bright bird song ordains

cathedral in rains
