Earth and Sky

Mountains 2015 037

The earth said to the sky, “How long?” “How long until the storm, to end all storms?”

“Not long.” said the sky. “Every time they are cruel, letting a child die, abusing women, cutting off heads, I add another cloud of fury, lightning, and thunder.”

The earth asked, “Will they ever learn?”

The sky said, “I doubt it, and there’s not much time left.”

The earth whispered softly to herself,

“have mercy…..”
