Jet fumes going straight up

pointed at one end

with an eye at the top.

Needle in the sky

like God is sewing back together

the rips and tears we've made in the

Rumbling down
screams of agony and pain
the mountain is falling down.

What of the creatures who
make their home inside the
beautiful Appalachians?

Is more coal more precious
than ruining the

Is it worth the raping

the time of


when the earth stands still.


as the ocean moves in

tiny ripples

awaiting the waves of the coming day

the gentlest of movement.


as the water glistens

over the vast and

wondrous ocean.


as the day begins

and light wakes the world

and may life is renewed again.
