A Generous, Well Stocked Cupboard
We turn coconuts into cakes,
brass into trumpets,
pigment and linseed into pastoral landscapes.
Natural ingredients mixed with a bit of soul
broaden the human experience.
We turn trees into homes,
wool into sweaters,
gardens into dinner.
We live in an era of great comfort.
But the natural world is more than a
generous, well stocked cupboard
for all of our human endeavors.
It is what we are,
and the day calls for us
to put ourselves back into the story of nature.
To assist the eon tuned working of life.
To protect and enter cathedrals of earthen floors,
fir scented walls,
star lit ceilings,
as often as we can.
