Green sparkles gilded white
in bright sunlight, waves of
summer wind, turn each leaf
to hear a seething on a shore
heavy breathing, life respires
bringing unity to all, round globe
celestial blue dot, cloud ribbons
cerulean habitat of seas, broken
uplifts of land, volcanic violence
echoing, the sadness of war.
