Heat heat go
Hot summers no
You’re not real
But here you are
Knocking at my door
River flora dies
River fauna cries
Where are you river dolphins?
I can’t see you no more
But I can hear your cries in my heart
Your sweet happy voices
Turned into screeches of anguish
Oh wild salmon fish
Extinct you go
You might be labeled superfood
But you ain’t superFish
Humans expect you to jump Dams
To lay your eggs and sustain the life cycle…
No fresh salmon for you
Former kings of the pine forests
No reverence to you anymore
You are no longer considered sacred
No longer considered powerful
How can you fight with claws and fangs against bullets?
Those deadly bullets
That claimed the lives of your father, mother, brothers and sisters
Take my life too
It’s better than being a circus freak in a zoo
By the river
The beaver has stopped building its dams
Fewer ponds for salmon and trout to grow
Fewer frogs and toads
Fewer forests filled with aspens and willows
Fewer layers of rejuvenating bottom land
The life cycle slowly dies
When will humans realize that if Mother dies
We become like lost orphans
Under whose roof shall we live?
Some rich people plan
To move to the Moon, Mars or colonize a new planet…
But 99% of the world are poor as **** (compared to them)
How much will we suffer?
Thus Awaken and let’s tell our Mother
How much we Love her
Let’s Care for her
And fight for her with our Lives
But not yet I guess
Here I am sitting in front of a computer
Others by their TVs
Others playing with their phones
While by the sea shore
Whales, sea lions and dolphins wash up dead
Sea birds spa on oil spills
And snack on the Great garbage patch
Once they fill up their bellies
They lie flat on the golden sand
Sand dunes are swept
Pockets filled with money
So waves sweep deep
When the beastly waves strike
Where shall we all flee?
To the mountains where glaciers melt?
To the plains where drought strikes?
To the valleys where floods sweep?
To the cities that can’t sustain themselves without electricity?
Or to the villages that have no access to clean water nor power?
Oh the world is filled with suffering
Sorry to say but there is no escape to it
I searched all my life for one
Only stumbled upon the zero shaped Ohm
Mind and world are One my friend
Mind is a creation of the World
World is a creation of the Mind
Let’s internalize this
And one day hopefully we’ll both realize Shunyata
Or die ‘tricked’ or trying
Not much to lose anyway
In the current state of world’s affairs…
And please excuse my directness
But Sustainability without Love is Bullshit!
Pure, hard, constipated, Bullshit!
Wake up from your rosy dreams
And see the world as it Is
Seeking completion as One.
And don’t forget
To Love your Mother, Father, Brothers, Sisters
And Climate Change
This is my ode to you
May you bring Change to this world…
