Great Gaia’s Flood
She has measured the weight
of our children’s children
and the toxicity of our careless intent.
Has suffered our scorching
rape of the ground, ravaged sky,
choked ocean gyres
the size of Texas
Spinning out of hope
in our disregard and in our greed
we stand condemned.
Indeed. It is the judgement of Gaia.
This is the weather of the world
