Unititled

~ Debby Ball


They cut down the trees today.
I saw the barren ground.
The voice of the birds and beast, gone;
The forest had no sound.

They drilled so many holes today.
Into ground so deep.
Pumping their oil from the land,
No care for damages they reap.

They let the poisons gush today,
Into the river wild and wide.
And as the fish began to die, 
I sat on the riverbank and cried.

And as they wound our Mother today,
My friend asked, "Do they not see, 
"The damage that they do?""No," said I, 
"They do not care, for they are moved by greed."

CORVUS INSIGHT
~ Orannhawk 

swirling
in the wind
lifting
spiraling, floating


like

unfettered
collapsed
balloons
catch
in
limbs, fences

obstruction
drowning
pinned down

by
rocks
in the creek

bubbles
rising
in protest

sucking away life

sunlight glare
catches
on
contoured shapes
bright colored labels
glint

detritus debris
slipping
over the
surface

sinking

into the briny deep
binding

suffocating

destroying

crows
watch
knowing
full discernment

PLASTIC

HAS

NO

SOUL
