Mother Earth's Cries
by Ameena Rafeek

As the water flows,

Mother Earth cries for her land.

Never-ending flow.


The greenery blows,

As Mother Earth sways and shakes.

Pools of tears below.


In comes the sunlight,

Peeking in through the mountains.

A new light, a glow.


Mother Earth’s teardrops,

They grow and nourish the Earth.

And her cries echo.
