gogyoshi ~ Mother Earth

Mother Earth doesn’t dream
of borders or bullets
to guard invisible.
She spends her hours of insomnia
searching for a god humans haven’t corrupted.

  1. Lovely, Susie, especially the last line . .
    searching for a got humans haven't corrupted . .

    That's exactly what we do, isn't it? . . :)

  2. This is amazing, especially the last line. You have brought the sadness of our Mother to light in such a lovely way. A very powerful five lines. Thank you for posting to this prompt.

  3. wow, this certainly is tight, wrought and oh so beautiful for the anger and ache - the closing lines really are just so piercing ... and now I'm left to muse on whether the Mother - Earth suffers from insomnia at all, or is simply the sleeping giant who will shake it off at her will, as she must, re-balancing and what we call "destroying" in this wild weather events etc. Anyhow - great 5 sentence poem and I'm just going to wander and let my mind rest with the startling notion of what you've put forth.

  4. I love the thoughts coming from mother earth! A powerful and beautiful poem Susie!

  5. This is mighty and beautiful.

  6. And the Great Mother is never wrong. So, perhaps we should start thinking about joining her seeking.

    I love this, Susie!
