World Environment Day

Today is the 5th of June 2015 and on this day over 100 countries across the globe celebrate World Environment Day.

Mother

As she lies there crouched upon a flaming desert,

No end doth her eyes assert.

A battered soul and a crumpled heart for company;

A tormented being and a shattered life for comradry.

Her eyes speak a thousand words,

Pouring forth eons of reserve.

Pain encompasses her at every turn,

Everyone screaming for her to burn.

The soft silk of the Earth – upturned.

The soothing shimmer of the ocean – burned.

The crisp current of the air – tainted.

The ferocious fire of humanity – depleted.

Can you hear her lamenting?

Mother Nature is grieving.

Grieving for her Earth, grieving for her children.

Grieving because of their birth, grieving because of their insolence.
