My life pours out, a libation to the world,
pours and pours these 70 some years and still
my vessel offers its milky witness
to the goodness of creation.
What else should it pour for?
No small vision, this one,
wide enough for us, the mirror beings,
to open Earth’s eyes to her beauty.

Whether we change in time, and stay,
or whether we humans leave her in peace,
Jubilate! For we have received her gifts.
We are the descendants, we walk
where the ancestors placed their feet,
a path never straight, but serpentine.
Jubilate! The offering of your life libation may
tip the future into existence.
