A Field of Grass and Life

FreshGrassDryPines0_9105

It’s difficult to appreciate the intensity of life
even when lying in a wild field of tall grass.
You can get a hint by listening to your body.
Billions of cells, busy, busy, busy,
processing food and water, sugar and fat,
so that they can maintain themselves
and the production of proteins
till it is time to divide
and prepare for more life.
I wonder if any organism other than humans
demonstrates incompetence
in administrating the gift of life.

 

“We pride ourselves on an intelligence that allows (and encourages) us
to kill millions of our own kind.
Call it intelligence if you will.
It’s not very smart.”
