Treasure Island

Anand Dixit

(01-01-1975 / Bangalore)

Death of Gaia


Gaia, the mother of earth
Gaia, the mother earth
Gaia, the greek goddess
Gaia, the primordial deity

Daughter of Chaos,
Mother of Uranus
Wife of Uranus
Beloved of the goddess

Mother of mankind
Light of the world
Harbinger of energy
Silent smiling mother
What have we done to you?

We have bound you
We have broken you
We have stripped you
We have ripped you
We have raped you
We have scraped you

You came not to destroy,
But to fulfill
But we fulfilled
Your Destruction

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
