When Mother Cries

When Mother Cries

I heard her faintly,
quietly sobbing
when I stood very still.
At that moment I noticed
things were not right.
The season's are confused
and the animals are hungry
and yet I sleep at night.
I feel knots tightening my middle
and pretend I am dreaming
so my comforts in life won't be disrupted.
Yet, somehow they are,
while I sip my morning coffee,
it tastes flavourless.
My body hungers less for food
and more for spiritual sustenance.
I go where it's noisy
to escape the guilt of knowing
her sorrow,
then back to nature to see
if she's still breathing.
