Blood of the Earth

The blood of the earth is stirring
whipping up over the edges
the banks, the shores
boiling up, a surge
covering, cleansing
wash away the scourge

The blood of the earth is moving
Queensland is flooded
Rio beneath the waves
Medellin sops up lakes
Left at her door

The blood of the earth is seeking
Renewal, rebirth
the universal solvent
receding by 2012
