Wild Seeds

Love creates such a language

"The Tamil language is very precise,"
the Tamil poet said.
"There are seven different words
between the English words, 'bud' and 'flower.'"
One would have to live in attentive quiet,
live with the plant,
marveling at each subtle change
to create such a language.
Love creates such a language.

Why ever did you trust us with the Earth

Why ever did you trust us with the Earth,
Your jewel, Your pearl of great price?

Why did you trust us with Water,
pure crystal in the sunlight?

With rain-forests
lush with table-sized leaves?

What do You see in us?
