The light vanishes
The dawn roars
The darkness flourishes
Two birds hear the interference of their mother-
Soon the ground trembles
ears that listen run
eyes that see hide
than again begins tearing
the ground that unsheathes,
A beast from the West
Coast violating their presence.
Frightening any being that lives nearby.
Suddenly under the ground
another beast rises through the cracks
scaring the shadows of the people.
Mother nature has detected
dark impurities as her children cry’s
of pain-inflicting wounds cause no alarm
Nature acts on its own without control
creating wolves to slay the weapons of the beast
or to slay the beast within
with promises to protect her
Man must decide his destiny
and still if he chooses the hardest path?
knowing water is not renewable-
slay the beast within.
Vanish it to its old original intention-
to be one with mother earth
now it is no longer an impurity of choosing
but a child
of mother earth.
