Chatsworth Nature Preserve

 

Abalone shell
from the sea beyond
this sacred circle
of rocks in the round.

Sweet mother of pearl
cradles the white sage,
burning, smoldering,
smoking from the stage.

As the herb’s essence
purifies the air,
we are reminded
to respect and care.

Sand, clay, organic
matter. Mother Earth.
California water.
Earth Day in Chatsworth.

Only once a year,
on a Saturday,
the Nature Preserve’s
open, on display.
