Today, on International Earth Day, Magaly has asked us to write from the prompt
Do you love the Earth, or do you harm her?
When Gaia Wails
Today, I send prayers to Gaia.
I dig my fingers into precious Earth
And pay sacrifice with my own blood.
I sing to her of gentle love,
Felt for Her by all living things.
Yet Her reply is far from good.
Her feelings of betrayal show in Her actions.
Mountains tumble to bury towns.
As Gaia wails I watch the flood.
Her tears seep between my toes.
I used to run barefoot upon the grass,
But today Gaia wails as I stand in mud.
If I were mistreated by those I love...
Would my response be any different?
Happy Earth day?
*took this after posting this morning...yes it is my blood*
