We pledge allegiance
to the flag that shows
this blue-brown planet afloat
in boundless black space, silently circling
our brilliant star. We pledge allegiance
to the power of life for which it stands,
the breath, the blood, the pulse in all beings, gentle
or fierce, in the leveling generosities of the unnameable
God, Yahweh, Allah, Buddha, Brahma, Tara,
Mary, Yemaya, Shakti. We pledge allegiance,
all our strength, skills and heart, to Mother Earth,
her peoples, plants and creatures,
her soil, air and water, to protect,
to uphold, to heal, to create peaceful
conversion of conflicts, to listen long
to those who oppose us, to bring forth
a just sharing of her food and resources,
one planetary nation,
indivisible, under love,
with freedom and fairness
for all

Fall 2001, K J Hanson
