The Journey to the West

Though we journey to the West We pray to the East More or less that's the way Each day begins and ends It’s a tale everyone ...

The Green World Won't Grieve Us (a lament in anticipation of spring)

The green world won't
Reprieve or grieve us
Not in science fiction or truth
After more than a century and half
Of our unremitting abuse

Now and forevermore 
Nature must look after
Her own rites and cures
Innured to human
Demands and needs

For having laid waste
Our powers and so much else besides
We're destined to huddle
Along the shoreline
Among all the other orphans of
Our self-made storms
