She

Earth is a woman.

We think about her strengths 
only when it serves us
Forget what she’s capable of 
till she reminds us
We take 
Without giving
quite enough 
Time 
for her to replenish and
Heal. 

She stands voiceless. 
Can only erupt 
In flames 
Once it’s been too 
Much
Never asked-
Has others 
Assuming for her
Taken for granted.

Earth is a woman.
Impossible to explain 
Can’t look away 
They lust after every corner.

Dirty 
And 
water 
a soft place to land 
Beautiful enchanting 
Colorful 

They stop and stare and admire and photograph 
Primp and pamper and pet.

She’s 

A woman.

Resilient
Strong
Holds everyone
Even though it’s so, 

So

heavy

Elegant and
mesmerizing
S o f t 
rough. 
Constantly evolving
She grows from ashes.

Earth.
