if only we let them

stay still
do nothing
simply observe

see how all things
take care
of themselves

your heart beats
without your
volition

your cells reproduce
without your
knowledge

your gut churns
without your
effort

your lungs breathe
without your
awareness

the sun
rises and sets
the earth
rotates and revolves
the sea
ebbs and flows

the seed sprouts
the plant grows
the flower blooms
the fruit ripens
the life multiplies

all of this
is nature
acting on its own

the earth flourishes
without the hand of man
but how do man’s hands
today affect the earth?

stay still
do nothing
simply observe

see how all things
take care
of themselves
if only we let them
