Oonah V Joslin

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
industrial contempt,
rape of the ground, ravaged sky,

choked ocean gyres
the size of Texas
turning, turning.

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
we created.
