I look at the manzanita tree

with the cactus under it

silhouetted by the sun and shadows.

I wonder - why so many laws

and practices here are frozen in time

spurred by greed and self interest

With profit being the bottom line?

my intention to return to harmony

between man and nature

With the desire to help all life

being the motivating force

goes out to the universe

Change is coming - foreshadowed

by the spirit of the manzanita tree

and the proud cactus

In its shadow

telling of the life inherent

in all nature's sculptures.

Nice poem. Yes profit, power, ego are some of major motivators

of many people for ages.
