The Earth Cries

love brought a great storm
to quiet the hate in all
bringing hope and peace

teardrops fall silent
while the Amazon sleeps hot
animals cry out

the youth demand change
to save the green planet earth
and her water blue

God’s great birth of life
is not ours to take away
but one to preserve

Haiku by Joni 1/2/20
