Life and death on this planet now lie
in Man's hands.
after depth we penetrate these phenomena which encompass us.
our grasp shimmer the ultimate truths.
we master these, how shall we learn -- not to die -- but to live?
What wisdom guides life's ever-changing
What subtle factors work in flesh and spirit to cause one kind
and brilliance while its near kin declines into extinction?
After overuse by Man, the earth remains
Yet after natural disasters -- earthquakes and tidal waves, fires,
glaciers,hurricanes -- life builds back, if undisturbed by
upon stage, to richness.
What are the forces of renewal?
