Listen

Somehow we misheard the instructions
about evolving our consciousness,
our connectedness to all things,
as “always develop paradise.”
Since then, the ground has bled,
forests choked, even oceans spoiled.
Mother Earth recoils in horror,
her immune system working overtime
in an urgent attempt to purge herself
of this latest parasite before it kills her.
All because we didn’t listen
carefully enough.
