Zoetic bellowing earth,
fissured by the diastole of
her deep blistering heart;
E x h a l i n g
her surging expressions of creation,
obscure the sky with ashen pelts;
her molten tears
sear and scar
her once velvet green complexion
into pitted and swollen chasms.
Engulfing the sculptured terrain,
as an artist's used canvas
is consumed by yet another landscape of
The planet partakes
in the anguish of birth.
Nature's first stage
of dust to dust metamorphose
is as the cygnet
of a ten thousand year old swan.
