Up in the Air

That’s where we live
imagining we now see
the world clearly.

Everyone scrambles
for a bird’s-eye view
of the devastation

we have made of home.
We call it progress
and think fortune

smiles on us
when dry winds
lift us up over

what was our land
fertile and generous
in the old days

when we understood
how we depend
on what Earth offers us.
