Earth Song


I am the weeping earth cringing

in pain when you dig me up, pulling out


limbs, entrails leaving me to hemorrhage.

Shocked, in excruciating pain, no one hears my


silent cries. Children orphaned, lives torn apart,

fracking my veins drinking me dry. Parched


I crumble into pieces. I am the silent sky watching

anger whizz by to explode in places you don’t like.


Not yours to care while I listen

to the cries of the weak


trying to make sense of it all

amidst terror raining down from


above. I am the roaring waves, the deep

darkness under heaving waters, flowing rivers


gurgling streams and silent lakes that stand still as

mirrors for clouds to comb their hairs. You


damn me everywhere but I lift my

head straining to rise, course through the


way I want and not how you think

I should. I am the raging fire that burns, taking


the trees with me chasing the birds away,

the deer, rabbits and wild beasts


that hide within my voluminous cloaks. Trees, how

I love to sway to birds tunes, the beat of squirrels feet,


weave my magic through the land, burrowing in deep,

standing up tall reaching high to the skies waving


my many arms in the breeze holding onto life. I am

woman I am life I am earth and I bleed.
