SACRED
By M. Linda Steffey

God lives in all things
Living.....
The whale
The sparrow
Butterfly, bee..
The deer
The bear
The frog
You, me....

Those in fur
Those in scale
Those in feathers
Dark skin, pale...
The rhino
The bluebird
The elephant, tree
The grasses
The flowers
The rolling sea...

And we do these things
To the least of His brothers..

We trap Him
Call Him names
We torture
We hunt game...
We beat Him
It's all the same....
We abandon
Pollute Him
Cut Him down
Skin Him...

How sacred life
In which He dwells
How fragile, how pure..
How sad we do such things
To Him...yet
He forgives us
With love so pure!....

(c) M. Linda Steffey 1990
