138–Our Earth is Quaking

how tough to live like this watching cracks in our beloved earth
is it fear rage love? what makes her shake like this moving in waves
under foot we live on her cool surface covering up a fiery core
are we cracking open loosing our footing splitting into pieces
or maybe the only damage is to the pesky pimples we grow
on her skin our roads and houses high rises and hotels
railroads and airports maybe that’s the only thing we
risk except our lives and what are we on this planet
less than what we could be maybe a partner in creation
a compassionate species with a deep love and appreciation
for this mother who tolerates instead our greedy carelessness
until maybe she can’t stop quaking in fear or anger or sorrow
