All who fashion idols

And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcasses upon the carcasses of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you. — Leviticus 26:30

All man’s work will disappear
from the soft trickle of the light rain
and the raging heat of the forest fire
from the wild winds and the rivers with indomitable spirits
raging against the dams that impede their freedom

I am the soft trickle of the light rain
and the raging river

I am the blowing winds
and the fiery forest

I am the indomitable spirit who with nature
destroys the idols of man’s hubris

All man’s work will disappear
The concrete slabs will lose to the grass
and the burrowing animals who fight as the savage man does
The buildings will crumble from the rivers,
blood of the earth
And man himself will one day find death,
death which he has tried so hard to flee
but which unrelentingly returns like the force of nature it is

I am wild nature, which resists domination
and which will prevail in the end
But in the present I am prepared to
live wild or die
