The Earth is Crying
Listen..! The earth is crying,
heard only by the silent rain.
Pay heed to her voice, listen to her warning,
listen again and again.
We bury her wetlands awash with waste
in pursuit of perfection, in consummate haste.
Furthermore we spill her blood on the seas,
beaches soiled by the dross of her land,
sand, sticky, sullied with illimitable glut.
In isolation, in desperation, come the cries of her creatures
from miniature graves in the sand.
On the other hand, the skies would seem not to notice,
while the winds whisper an ominous sound.
Pay heed to her voice, the earth is bleeding.
Evidence lies here on the ground.
