Earth’s Eye

A lake is Earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.
        ------Henry David Thoreau
Earth's Eye

Can it be clearer?
Mirrored in lakes
Echoing life,
Nature’s pulse is our own.

It is all there.
Laid ever so bare,
A future borrowed.
Low bridge to tomorrow.
Gorging on her bounty,
Without thought it started.
Neglecting her signs--
Used and discarded.
Rivers and fields
Given to man
Need to be healed,
While we still can.
        -----G. Hill
Sunset Upon Us; To Renew our Genesis
—- G. Hill
The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.
      -----Genesis 2:15
