Mary de La Valette – Entering Nature

Yes, there is beauty
Enormity of beauty and truth.
But there is immense pain and suffering.
The wind and the clouds
And the rain
Bring messages, you know.
My trees know about
The Damming of the Great Rivers
The Killing of the Great Whales
They know about the death
Of seven elephants in India
Hit by a train.
They know about the lynx
Caught in a snare
A mile from here.
The weight of their suffering
Is intense, palpable, silent.
And they know
Who is the enemy

Jenny McBride – If I Could Do One Thing

If I could do one thing with my life
I’d cleanse the world of cars
And watch green set fire
To the roads
Turn off every ignition
They’ve taken more lives than they’ve saved
Seal every gas cap empty
With no oil spill refill
But I can’t do one thing
I must do many
 
Jenny McBride
