Broken Earth

by Robert Gresak
(Durban, South Africa)

The Earth that is sundered and broken,
can it, will it be healed?
Evils dark shadow continue's to fall fast
like sand in an hour-glass,
the chill and energy-sapping
winds of malignancy blast
while men of moral stature
stand distraught and aghast.

Yet 'tis man himself swayed
by ceaseless greed
causes Mother Earth and his
own selfhood to bleed.

We forget at our peril
that Earth is no mere shell
but a living, breathing spirit
with the inner fires of creation lit.
