this is our Work

I remember another time:
when people celebrated
the fecundity of the Earth
with gratitude
that fed the soil, purified the water,
gave life to creatures.
Another time,
could be the past,
could be the future
but here on Earth when
children are free to love
and they dance with the trees
who teach them
to commune with life.
Now carries the kernel
of this possibility
that we must tend.
And this is our work.

This is our Work.
