Green and Blue



Mother Earth is green and blue.
Sadly, money is green too.
To get it, they will wreck the earth,
for only dollars are of worth.

What colour are the corporate souls,
with their red hearts so full of holes?
How can they not know that they borrow
today's wealth from our kids' tomorrow?


Sigh. for Elizabeth Crawford's Creativity Challenge: Colour. North Dakota pipeline says it will continue building in that location regardless of the order to stop. And trump's regime wants to privatize reservation land, to make it easier to extract (rip off) all the resources. Have we gone into a time warp? I seriously can't stand it. Someone make it stop.

  3. My dear Wild sister,
    your eyes are blue,
    mine are the same,
    with a touch of green.

    I do not know the color
    of their souls, but I
    do know they want to blot
    out our truth with darkness.

    Darkness that is black
    and silent with fear.
    Our truth is white with
    years of knowing.

    Do not despair. We shall
    continue to write our truth,
    raising our voices, bringing
    light into their darkness.

    Elizabeth

  5. Sad, indeed. That nature has to share green with the color of money, that we have to share the label human with the beasts that rape everything they touch. Sad, sad, sad.

I am currently experiencing problems with my comments vanishing into the ether, or going to your Spam folders- even sites I have visited for years. The problem is with wordpress sites and those with Akismet security. I try various methods of giving my sign in info until something works. I want you to know I AM visiting everyone and trying my hardest to comment. Smiles.
