Day 23: Ask For Forgiveness



I saw the smoke in the forest

Somehow it gives me unrest

Is it a new project to house the civilized?

What about the plants and animals where shall they live?

Ah maybe they are welcome in the community

After all, civilized knows about hospitality

And the insects came — welcomed with a spray

The monkeys knocked – “Sorry we’re not related hairy.”

And so the door was closed with an air of victory

But the air whispered, “Your victory is only temporary.”

It’s Day 23 of Feeling Good! I am not so sure if we can make a new forest to house those that we forced to leave. And if ever we can make a new one, are they still around to witness that we are rebuilding for them?

Not sure. What is sure is we are part of the extinction of both nature and civilization. And the least that we can do is to ask for forgiveness – to whom? I don’t really know. Maybe we got to shout it out to the Universe or whisper it to ourselves.

I think it will somehow make us feel good that we have reconciled with nature when we finally ask them to welcome our flesh deep in the ground or our ashes amongst the winds.


“Then he adds: “Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more.””

– Hebrews 10:17

    I love the idea of asking forgiveness from the people and animals we wrong. If everyone could see that we are all connected, the world would be a much better place. Blessings to you, spoon!

    Fantastic and oh so horrible for the human ego to be true!

  7. Humans will eventually all reap what we have sown. Maybe its best if we do become extinct, we don’t deserve this beautiful planet that’s for sure.
    Lovely piece from you.

    A creative take on the theme.. I like it.

    I agree that we need to take the other animals and habitat of the land… nature is not only for us. In the end, everything goes back to dust and nature.

    You have such a sweet heart, for Him and all that He has created. This reminds me of the earth groaning until He comes again. It may sound silly, but when I have accidentally hit something of His with my car . . .I ask Him to forgive me. I feel so bad.
    God bless you and God bless all of His creation too, the human and plant and animal and insect.
