I Want to Take my Place

photography by Susa SilvermarieI want to take my place
my small place, my human place,
among the countless kinds of beings.
I rise to life as they do
clothed in Gaia’s radiance
and purposed to revere her.
I cannot be present
on my own.
Each being in its perfect place
in the jeweled net of life,
makes our presence plural;
and laughs at the lie of aloneness.
