Does a raven act sincerely?

Can you trust an earthworm?

Or expect integrity from a hawthorn?

Are bees forgiving?

Is a forest glade accepting?

Is moonlight generous?

Or spring water kind?

What of cruelty, selfishness

and ignorance?

From whence do they come?

And how do they serve?

Some questions are riddles

For marvelling at the ineffable –

They are signposts home.
