dark gray skies caress the trees and hold them ever so gently,
sunboy hides needing a much deserved rest,
it is time for the cold rain and snow to blanket the earth..
it is time for the creatures to take shelter in the bosom of mother earth,
and allow their great mother to renew.
mother earth has been beaten and threatened,
she will hide and recover and heal,
and set forth again to
reclaim what has been stolen.
