To deer and dolphin
forgive me.
I have missed the mark
and often, even if
unintentionally, acted against you.

eart01_400_03To lion and zebra
elephant and giraffe
to wolf and hare, bear
and beaver
to koala, panda, osprey
and salmon…

Being human
I have fallen
from relationships, breaking
away from the sacred
hoop that binds us all.

It is for God
by whatsoever name
to oversee creation, the
justice of diversity
and to give definition to
the habitat
and identities of species.

To each of you my
family of this Living Earth
bless me with kindred pardoning.
Now I pledge, in
recovered humility, never
again to be exclusively a man.

Welcome me back on
this Earth Day of
contrition, of celebration
to rejoin in reverence
the circle of life.
