Sue Ring deRosset – Apotheosis
that a walk through a delicate meadow
does not trample the flower.
that my life is prosperous
without harming other living creatures.
that I understand and accept
the design of the universe–good or bad.
that I know when to act quickly
and when to do nothing at all.
that everyone I touch
knows that I love them deeply.
that even the timid deer
relax their flicking ears in my presence.
that my corpse will one day
nourish the raven, the skunk, the wolf.
