Natural Religion

There's the origin story,
Big Bang, entropy, stardust;
Cosmology: it's a branch of physics;
Spiritual practices are easy,
Remember to breathe, eat, sleep, expel waste, 
And let your heart beat;
A sacred text?
Put your hands on the side of a tree
Let words wash over you and away
Pray to the birdsong that you are a component of this universe
Among many
All headed to the same place
Death, decay, destruction
And reuse in every possible form
