nature's creations

On a summer morning
I sat down
on a hillside
to think about God -

a worthy pastime.
Near me, I saw
a single cricket;
it was moving the grains of the hillside

this way and that way.
How great was its energy,
how humble its effort.
Let us hope

it will always be like this,
each of us going on
in our inexplicable ways
building the universe.
—  Mary Oliver, “Song of the Builders”

“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”

Follow me while we walk through this beautiful creation of nature my father made and don’t think about those humans for a second, with all their obsessions
