upon the spirit of evolution…
that can turn caterpillars to butterflies..
scales into feathers..
seawater to blood..
the miraculous force that inspires rocks and dust
to weave themselves into biology..
metamorphose our species,
you have stood by us for billions of years – –
do not forsake us now….
empower us and awaken us
in pure and dazzling creativity…
awaken in us the powers
that we need to survive the resent crisis
the powers we need to
evolve into more aeons of our solar journey.
awaken in us a sense of who we *truly are*..
tiny ephemeral blossoms on the Tree of Life…
make the purposes and destiny of that tree
*our* profound purpose and destiny…
i meditate upon the power which sustains the planets in their orbits…
that wheels our Milky Way in its 200-million-year spiral..
imbue our personalities and our relationships
with harmony, endurance and joy…
fill us with a sense of
-= immense time =-
so that our brief, flickering lives
may truly reflect the work of vast ages past…
and also the millions of years of evolution
whose potential lies in our trembling hands…
