The Earth Will Remember Us

100_1558

And the earth will remember us long after our footprints

have faded, and our world is no more –

paradise lost forever.

      

But in that day, the bees will dance in the forests

and stallions and mares

will run free.

      

And the grass will grow tall again,

as the cement begins to crumble.

The Tribulation Tree

Canada and More 231

Twilight hangs over us, and is getting deeper

sinking into politics, where prejudice rules

and giving us a sense of darkness winning,

but it doesn’t. We have more than the moon

at night. We know the end is only

the beginning, and the light gets brighter

because there is always

a dawn.

At least we hope so.

The Healing of the Earth

Mountains and Rivers 432

When it is the end, and the lights go dark,

we will not see the colors,

the flowers will lose their power,

but only for a short time.

Nature always comes back, healing,

taking time to recover from ripping,

tearing, the bleeding of the sky,

but it will come back, and we will live,

with scars in the sky, making it stronger,

living in the green, with wholeness the strength of trees,

and we will be at peace with the earth,

once again.

Doe on the Dark Path

Woods 2015 003

Doe walked along the dark path,

not in the mood to be chased by hunters,

seldom any light, they could not find her here,

and she was tired of the war,

many of the deer nation were dying,

and it wasn’t about food,

couldn’t they just be left alone?

And these humans did not honor the creation,

did not play by the rules,

not like the First People, who carried no guns,

no explosions breaking the silence,

they honored the deer, and thanked them,

taking only what they needed.

There were rumors in the wind now,

that the Creator was not happy,

and the war against the deer would soon be over,

that people would only be part of history.

Doe was sure hoping,

that the end would come soon,

her heart was heavy,

as sprinkles of light touched,

the forest floor.

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…..”
