the Blue Mother cries acid tears that roll out in waves,
in a punitive wash which can last for years.
She observes the younger children
not showing concern for the elder ones,
as they are decimating their dwelling places.
If angered relentlessly,
the Blue Mother may close her eyes forever,
and we will all perish with her.
What a tragedy it would be
to lose her light to darkness,
her symphony to silence!
