Alphabet Poetry Series: “H is for Heritage”

(Warning: Graphic images after the poem.)

no more dolphins
no more whales
no more eagles
only tales

no more trees
no more fresh air
no more fresh water
only litter

no more babies
no more daughters
no more prayers
only haters

this is the heritage
we leave behind
I’m so very sad
for humankind

Dolphins killed in Brazil.

Indonesia’s deforestation.

Forced abortion in China.

Forced abortion at 7 months. (China)

NO HOPE

The Sparrow

Rain
Rain

So…

Upon my head
Drown my thought
Wash my sorrow
Water this drought
Until tomorrow

When I can
Get up again

See the sparrow
Without a doubt
Stand on the barrow
And sing out
Wings and heart out spread

So…

Rain
Rain
