POEM: Nature’s Wisdom


By Christi Ortiz

May my faith be as courageous and fierce as the lion
May my insight and wisdom be as piercing and discerning as the eagle

May my calm be as peaceful as the tranquil lake
And my heart be as full as the rushing river

May my fruitfulness and action be as abundant as the wild flowers
And my dedication be as faithful as the migrating birds

May my listening be as keen as the bat
And my spirit as gentle as the butterfly

May I learn from the Wisdom of your creation all around me
And may my voice join in their chorus of your praise

May I enter the rhythm of the seasons and cycles of nature
And be renewed by the rebirth of each new day and each new moon

Book Banning Should Start with the Bible

Clearly the Bible needs to removed from our schools and libraries lest it corrupt our youth or make them feel guilty or cause them to question traditional American capitalism, individualism and nuclear family values. And of course this is just the beginning of a necessary purge. We need to remove all encyclopedias and histories that give us the low down on the human experience, all art books that depict the human figure and computers that give access to all of the above.
