THE WHOLE OF GOD
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

Sadly....
All of Man's religions ends
With his own species,
For it cannot embrace
The Whole of God's Creation!

Yet...
Look how one Man treats
Another because of his
Religion or maybe his
Color!
Is that Love?

Strangely..
Religion does not stop Man
From abuses to Earth, our Mother...
The Sea and the Sky..
To the Leopard shot only for his skin
Or the elephant for his Ivory!
Is that Stewardship??

Does...
Man's religion teach that Man
Can endure on his own?
Alone?
Without the Tree?
Clean Water? The Air?
Birdsong?
The magic of Animals?
Is that Life??.....
