31 May – Biophilia

There is a great love
few people discuss –
they’re far too caught up
with fickle Eros.
More constant than romance
with beauty that doesn’t fade
but renews itself as life and death
constantly change place.
This is biophilia,
a natural devotion
that draws us to the wild,
stirring and soothing emotion.
It inspires us to connect
with sister water, brother wind
and every other vital, vibrant
familial living thing.
I may not ever get to be
Juliet to a true Romeo,
but this love story with the wild
will always be my own.
