In Honor of Earth Day:

Earth’s Tears

Freely they flow

As quietly she gazes around the hollow.

Once filled with trees and the lovely bird’s song.

Overlooked by blue skies and midnight stars that glowed.

Gone is the stream with clear cold water

Where children would wade as summer grows hotter.

The wolf lost her pups when crossing the road.

Her den destroyed, it was bulldozed.

She must move on with nowhere to go.

The city has swallowed the lush hollow.

Once filled with trees and the lovely bird’s song.

Now filled with horns and cars that don’t belong.

She looks to the sky. She wonders where she’ll go.

She prays to the Spirit as her tears flow.

I find myself "Dancing With Cancer", problem is...I can't dance. I stumble, bumble, and get pulled along. To keep my sanity, (humor me), I write short stories, a journal, musings and poetry....just about anything goes.
