Nature is Speaking – Joan Chen is Sky


“Look up!
There I am
I am the Sky
I’m a warm protective blanket wrapped around everyone on Earth
I can bring clouds, rain and wind
I can be an Ice storm, without me you would fry
Every day I am the breath you take in
Yet you are making me sick
I am congested, off balance, polluted
You see, I am more delicate than you think
It took millions of years to get it just right
My perfect mix of gases, temperature and weather that you enjoy
But now your cars your factories and dust, they have pushed me past the limit
And you wonder why my typhoons and tornadoes are more intense, more frequent
I have become unpredictable
Less rain here, a lot more rain there
Hotter summers, colder winters
I cannot even control myself anymore
Enough about me, I will show my changes to you in the days ahead
But in the end I’ll be fine
Give me a few thousand years, I have weathered trauma before
I am not worried for myself
Look up!”
