The Song of Mother Earth

Haida Gwaii 16-24 jul 10 036

for all those days when

your salt water rolls down to meet the ocean’s tears

I will hold you

for all those times when

life’s meaning is stretched to a skin far too thin

I will be still for you

for all those moments when

the roughness of humans jolts your nerve endings

know that

you will leave me

long before I leave you
