Painting by Kamunya Wanjuki

Our Earth weeps waves of falling tears- with hope, each one will be her last to wipe away climatic fears from air pollutants that amass.

The air is washed, the oceans rise, with cleansing tears, her deluge creeps. Disaster goes against her will; she, driven by renewal, weeps. With hope, each one will be her last to wipe away climatic fears from air pollutants that amassed; our Earth weeps waves of falling tears.

I get that we should keep our Earth clean and healthy -- on the other hand, in a single instance the Earth may erupt with fire and poison -- or be destroyed by some other extinction event....
