Brother Earth, Sister Sky

We are men of the dirt,
derived from the earth
and one day returning thereto.
We are blood and sweat and tears
we are dreamers and we are
wanderers
We are looking a way to defy gravity
to rise up above ourselves
now and forevermore
You are women of the sky,
ethereal, majestic
you see is us in the dirt
and take pity on us
See our pain and nurse our wounds
You are fragile, and so are we
though in different ways
Together, we protect our frail
existence and wrap it with warm
tenderness
We make a home for ourselves,
together on this misbegotten loam
and we find contentment in our days
Complementing each other,
completing each other
As we were designed to do
ever since the First Day,
when man was taken
from the dust.
