Natural Mother

Mother Earth

 

Relentless

We spin, in tune with her soul.

Axis’s weakened – her two Blackened Poles.

Breathing and gasping, losing control.

 Prints of greed and melting snow.

Her elegance-in all purity,

and saint like disposition

have become scarred and disgraced.

Unforgotten,

her obligations to us.

Fighting this infection,

her wordless movements of caution are rejected in vain.

 A heroine in all her right, protector and saviour,

 and restorer of sigh.

Toxic soil, the products of coal.

Mines-now crevasses deep within her soul.  

 Her heart strong, but body frail.

There will be a day when she is no longer able.

We are too blind to see,

we have become earths worst enemy.
