Alone we burn

Alone we burn through dark catastrophes of grief
the death of bone and flesh
each moment a new green leaf
where hope holds sway
over deceit.

As Earth Rides

Earth rides waves of light and air
Pink clouds float behind the dark bark of trees.
We cannot deceiver the whisper of leaves.
Dogs hear sounds we cannot hear.
Fields of ice turn to bright white flocks.
Steps under seas lead nowhere.
Crows question.

We see
poisoned oceans
dolphins burnt to death
whales washed upon the beach
dead birds falling from the sky
refugees who flee
children tossed like rags on rocks.
Crows question.
