MOTHER NATURE

IMG_2902

Out into the fields, I walked
Lightly brushing my finger tips
At the edge of leaves and petals
The friends who breathe into me
This only life that I know…

Longing to understand what drives men;
Trying to grasp what it is that blinds us
Stealing from a life-long companion,
She.
Mother nature
Calls out to deaf ears
Hits hard on stone walls of mindless greed

Now, at her funeral bed, I stare
Down into the pit of my own slow disappearance.
I die with her so I can sing her song
And hopefully, let the world know
That she once lived.
I sing:
When the earth cries
When the skies die
When the waters cry out for dear life

When the rains come
And when it’s harvest time
When seasons scream and shout out loud

Will we see?
Will we feel?
Will we hear the mourning?

When the trees speak
The language of insecurity,
I wonder if we’ll ever cope
Well, even if at all
I guess we’ll never know

But when the flower closes her eyes
Hiding her face from the winds
Of pesticides, scorching heat
Stomping feet & ignorance
I wonder if we’ll ever know
That she. Mother Nature calls

So tell me:
Will we see?
Will we feel?
Will we hear the mourning?

Well, even if at all
I wonder if we’ll ever know
That she.
Mother Nature calls out to deaf ears.

I wonder if I’ll see, as I walk out into the fields
Lightly brushing my finger tips
At the edge of leaves & petals
That there’s something I can do to save them
Friends who breathe into me
This only life that I know
She. Mother Nature
Who breathes into me
This only life I’ve ever known.
