The river flows
both swift and strong,
from mountain throat
to ocean’s song.
Where screeching gulls
scavenge and nest,
trash and toxins,
their homes, infest.
Estuaries,
bulldozed and filled
for Condo Parks
Investors build.
Ecosystems
sorely distressed,
from the deltas
to Mother’s breast.
As stewards of
this earthly plinth,
we must reduce
Carbon footprints.
