Reverence

A mountain,
A bird,
A tree,
A river.

A child…

These things do not deserve reverence
because they were created by someone’s God
(although they may have been)
or because they are inhabited by Spirit(s)
(although they could be)
or even because they are a part of some great Divinity
(although…)

These things deserve reverence
because
they ARE.
