Holding the Moments of Creation’s Good

The season has changed
coming to this small town
in the west, California.

In silhouette,
a sleeping Indian princess lies
across the mountain named Tamalpais.
Buds show;

Spring has come, colors
awaken. Our bodies awake
with the pleasantry of aroused
knowledge this earth is good.

Ancient elements of mankind
beckon from the blood and sinews,
a memory that this was a promise
of earth, receiving us with splendor.

In the distance, among hills,
fog rolls over the tops,
and for a while in this world
of strife and evils of war
there is the knowledge
creation is with us, good.
