The Destruction of Creation

The destruction of creation
when we claim to be God
forgetting we are stewards
called to watch over the earth
to rest, to all to go fallow
the earth from time to time
to care for creation
by following God,
the master’s commands

We must remember
our charge to nurture
to tend the garden, the earth
to take sabbath, rest for ourselves
our animals, the whole world
The creator watching over us
how he must be crying now
as his people warm the planet
and fight around the globe
