Pure love

She smiled at us when we first opened our eyes.

Eager to show her beauty, she tried to touch us

– in as many ways as she could.

Sending us the very air we breathe,

the sunshine that provides us with the food,

the water which cycles the earth, always in motion

did not satisfy her, yet.

Time passed, we still were as clueless as ever.

There were lonely times when all we did was

-listen to the wind, rustling the trees and making them dance

in the Oh so familiar tunes.

She was there.

There were beautiful times, when we would play in the scorching sun

trying to find even a little trace of a shade during break.

She was there, too.

She didn’t say a word when we blindly built new buildings

on the once beautiful forests

She didn’t say a word when we blindly cut her parts

for making our lifestyle modern

But now

She was in fear.

Not for her survival.

No. Never.

She was a mother, after all.

And as all mothers, all she feared was about her children life

after her death.
