Sue Ring deRosset – Apotheosis

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