Mother Earth and Father Sky
never deny their children
my brothers, sisters
how shall I make amends
when the stream gurgles with laughter
and the light chases the shadows away?
have I not denied you three times?
see how my tears of sorrow flow like rivers
in these lines that pass through
I leave behind my errant ways
meandering in your memories' breath
soon the stillness shall rise and shine,
I shall be resurrected in your thoughts.
