April PAD Challenge — Day Twenty-Two

April 22, 2015


prompt: write a “nature” poem

For Mother Gaia, Earth Day 2015

mother rises up
stretches her welcoming arms
embraces us, warmth
spreads through new mornings–
peace and calm for us to enjoy

mother nurtures us
opens her bowels, shares
freely her abundant breasts–
gardens teem with life, await
the harvest of her children

we, a rebellious lot
duck behind trees, avoid
the loving touch–the tender
caress of mother’s hand–
defiant, we rape

and plunder her bounty
rip her limb from limb
strip away her lush forests–
rivers, rusted with blood
flow into the oceans of her tears

mother, we have destroyed you
there can be no forgiveness
