All of creation
(Hildegard of Bingen)

all of creation
she gave to us
to use, to enjoy

all this creation
that we misuse 
will bring us surely
all to damnation

the lady’s justice
is insistent 
on sequence
causality not punishment

best of all mercy:
we have forgotten who she is.

from mountain peak
to ocean trench
all of creation
she gave us
to use and enjoy

should we misure
this priceless gift
it will bring us
all to damnation

nature being as it is
not punishment
but consequence

turning to Kali
all of creation.
