Poem of the month:

the inspiration for last month’s Being Green Again workshop

We began as mineral

We emerged into plant life and into

the animal state, and then to being human

And always we have forgotten our former states

except in early spring,

when we dimly recall being green again.

So now humankind is being led along

an evolving course through

this migration

of intelligence and though we seem

to be sleeping, there is an inner


that directs the dream

It will eventually startle us back

to the truth of who we are.

~ Rumi
