"I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly."
-Winston Churchill

I see,
the wind whispers:
sweetness of our Mother.

Oh her shoulders we stand;
she never tires or withers.
She loves us with care.

I see,
Mother, how do I see?
The green of your hair?
The brown of your skin?
The necessity of your breath?

I see,
My intentions are clear,
From you I have departed.
Mother, I need,
Your wisdom I heed.

How I torment you;
You provide for me;
Your anger I understand.
Set me right Mother.

Through your blue eyes, I see,
You are weak and need my help.
Your children are here,
Mother, your skin is hard,
Your hair is burnt,
Your blue eyes are now black.

I see,
Mother my brothers are cold,
Mother I am hot.

Is it not your blood we depend,
our friends have to defend.

Blow your wind,
One last whisper.
Nary again do you come hither,
to you I go,
To be born again from your skin.

I see,
Though you are blind,
I see.

The author's comments:
This piece is about the fact that we affect the environment and those effects come back to haunt us due to the fact that we are tied to the Earth. To solve the problem we, this time, purposefully change aspects of the environment and then do not realize that the never-ending cycle causes those effects to come back to haunt us again.
