Celestial ecology


Whatever is, has been before; 
each taking inspiration from the past 
to breathe new life into the future:
this building, once the pattern of a tree, 
reflected in a pond,
this mountain, once a cloud;
this fish, the broken petal of a flower, 
torn by some harsh wind;
this paper once a bowl of rice --
nothing -- yet everything -- even the moon -- original, unique:
each element both dead and born again, 
inflamed with life and spirit, 
and true.
