The Lost Language

"The Lost Language"

By Joey Doherty


She misses us.

Our Mother Earth.

How could we forget Her?


We've lost our ears.

Our eyes.

Our Eye.


She sees us listening, 

but not to Her wind.

She sees us looking,

but not at Her changing leaves.


We no longer understand Her language.

The universal language.

If we can't connect with Her,

how can we understand each other?

How can we protect Her if we no longer know her voice?

Her face?


We've forgotten what to look for.

Things have clouded our sight.


We want everything Now,

but we don't know how to live Now.


Her skies weep for us,

hoping we find our way back.

Back to the center.

Back to Life.


Our Mother is showing us the way.


Let's listen.

Let's watch.

Let's learn.


It starts with me.

It starts with you.

It starts with we.
