Is this what can be a home? A rocky bed In the midst of a sea? Beneath the open sky Exposed to nature's elements Can humans truly survive? Why have we humans For centuries strived To shield us From this openness? Why have we tried to cover us From nature's elements? Building stronger barricades Erecting defences against nature's forces Trying to fight nature as an adversary? Would it not be possible To make peace with nature now? Let ourselves free Into nature's care And see if nature nurtures us? Bestows its warmth, love, happines and protection Like a loving mother?
