Mother Earth (a poem)

I once met Mother Earth,

She sang between the trees,

Breath moving through the branches

And twisting all the leaves.

 

She gave me a message

That wounded my heart,

That everything we’ve created

Is tearing her apart.

 

She can no longer grow,

Her roots trapped underground

Where a slab of concrete

Has since weighed her down.

 

But she still hopes for change,

Where she too can be free,

To run with us as wild men

In equal prosperity.IMG_1746.PNG
