Nature Is Our Everything

Linda practicing her religion on the 72 km West Coast Trail,
Vancouver Island, British Columbia, 1989.



Nature is our religion. 

The forest our cathedral.

Here we worship.


We go out and see non-human congregants,

And our hearts leap.


There is porcupine.

And grouse, spruce and ruffed.

Over there, a family of crows.

And there, the gentle deer have arrived.

Together, we rejoice in this wild place.


Praise Nature!

It is everything,

and we will do anything to protect it.


Thank you,

for this very day.

Without you, 

we are nothing.

  1. I think you are worshipping the creation more than the creator.
