What is she to you?

Yes those eyes have seen it all , deserted babies, raped women, executed men . Every word ever written on the brick wall. See her colours green and blue , her red lips will spill words of truth  in every hue.

What do you see within those eyes morning stars and midnight skies. See her skin the colour of scorched  earth,  burned by warfare and men’s lack of worth.

Are those bruises around her eyes or just blackened skin from tears she has cried. Is she reaching out to you she begs an answer and it must be true.

Who is she  this haunting host , she is Mother Earth , she supports us the most. Providing us with all we need we cut her open and leave her to bleed.

    As i read your poem, i was reminded of my indian heritage and my great grandmother…They loved the earth and honored all that i gave to them. It is sad what we have done to it all for our own selfish needs. I can feel her sadness, and also her pain. It almost makes me wish it would end, so i do not have to feel her sadness any longer. Very beautiful write my sister! I thought i lost this comment, because i lost power…but i will still leave it with you…now you know why i feel the way i do towards the subject!

      Again I thank you and yes I realize that you do understand my message. I respect your heritage deeply your forefathers communed with and nurtured nature. They respected the earth as one who gives a gift. All of the older original people of this world know that to receive we must put back in. I truly believe this and with hope and help from our God whatever name we call him by we can save our Mother Planet. Thank you for sharing your feeling and heritage with me I appreciate it.

    That’s a brilliant drawing, because there is a lot in those eyes. There’s a really solid look in those eyes.

    Another sad reflection this post, Willowdot, but so well expressed. LONG LIVE MOTHER EARTH!

      We all just need to keep remembering that Mother Earth needs looking after. We are the caretakers , so far we have not done our job very well she is not an infinite commodity. ! Hugs.
