gaia* plows

in her bosom
aaron's smiles
moses intercessions
growing stalks
decaying dreams

she used to smile
at stars in the yonder
but fret at satellites

she used to smile
at soaring eagles
but scorn at indulgent
little boy** and fat man***

she used to smile
at ribbing plows
but grumbles
at rumbling tractors

imperi(v)ous temporal
gruff, growling gaia*

* Gaia ("land" or "earth", from the Greek Γαîα; also Gaea or Ge (Greek {Γῆ) is a Greek goddess personifying the Earth.

*** bomb dropped on nagasaki
with grateful acknowledgment for tbs
