Tears of Gaia

Tears of Gaia

Across the majestic mountain tops,
Down on the valleys floors, Drifting in the oceans,
Floating in the air, Buried in the deep Earth,
The whispering songs of Gaia,
Bind all Life on Earth.

A beautiful glowing ball suspended in the dark,
Shinning like a sparkling jewel, in this universe desert crown.
A tapestry of life, worth more than any wealth can buy,
But with the human face of Gaia tears are being shed,
The tapestry of Life is unraveling, 
its intricate woven threads.

Have we forgotten or did we ever know?
Each of us is born, from these dusty earthen lands,
Dust shaped into form, Risen *****sapiens,
Standing upright, eyes to the stars,
Ascending from the Waters,
Wandering, often lost, transcended dreamers,
Searching for our Promised Land.
