Show Notes

Today, like every other day, mother earth kept doing 
her wondrous magical spinning thing. As the sun 
thrummed a vibrational magic, the light and dark 
doing its eternal dance. That's when that big old
mother earth smile happened, realizing this day 
was named for her. She said to all, 
please, take what you need. 

So the remaining bears, the wolves, hawks, butterflies,
and whales, even the scattered buffalo of Yellowstone, 
took what they needed, mostly food, sunlight, water,
a gentle breeze, and a glance toward far mountains. 

You know it seems that most critters understand
the concept of "enough." Only we humans are 
puzzled at the idea. And then only recently, 
since we tied our ceaseless wants and misconceptions 
to billions and billions of gallons of ancient sunlight. 

Still, mother earth smiles and says take all 
that you want. And of course, confused, we do. 
At least until we and she are exhausted.

–Dale Biron

Poem Postscript: Mother earth may never say no, but we can't say the same for physics...
