Soaking up the fiery sky
The oceans devour CO2
How does such imbalance
Befall such beauty?
There’s an illusion
We should be aware of
Of a gorgeous and beaming patient
With a terminal diagnosis
Purity
Generosity
And all the ways
Our world gives and gives
As we take
And taint
Perfect balance
With imbalance

 

The dolphins
The whales
The orangutans in the wild
These are our children
We abide with
Collectively
Mutually
There are of course trials
The contest for survival
Predation and prey
Greed and recklessness
Life is messy
We are bound together
One solitary earthly family
From the bonfire of our disappointments
We can repair this trouble
