Defining Moment

I am deeply concerned
the company
for the Oil Rupture
is leading the effort
toward stopping its flow.
This company has shown
the highest level
of irresponsibility
to humanity
and to all Beings.
it has based
its cobbled up efforts
on greed
and speed.
This effort
should be led
by the best
of our thinkers:
earth scientists,
wildlife managers,
ocean scientists,
with others.
This effort
should be held
in prayer
of all people
and all spiritual traditions.
The Earth
is both
more complex than we think,
She is
more complex
than we can think.
Any solution
should be
based upon
healthy respect
and humility for Life itself.
Much is
at stake
for more Beings
than we can know
and for future generations
who have as yet
not shown their faces
to us.
This event
is a defining moment
for our Species.
Which path will we take?
