The Healing

This planet will not
be healed

by powerful politicians
in big cities
who spend trillions on
a global strategy
that never quite begins.

They also burn much
Earth will be healed  
by villagers
who sing,
by backyard gardeners
like you

who walk more slowl
right here,
who feel the green
through bare soles,

speaking fewer words,

cradling each
others anger
mothers, awakening
the heirloom seeds
of the heart.
