"A Native California newspaper rooted with words and blooming with news"
~ The Editor
Background – stained with scarlet blood .
Hair lifted up in the atmospheric void,
nothing to hold on to ,
peaks of her hair locks dance as flames of fire in her pain .
Plastic green shade arrow launched by corrupt humanity wounds her body .
Moment of her fall is frozen in time on the artist's canvas
humiliation shown to all people ,
for our own shame - not hers .
Tormented face , agony of her eyebrows and clenched eyelids, leaves no one indifferent .
Once vivid flowers withered in the moment of her demise .
Blush pink, now pale skin .
Beneath her rib cage heartbeat stops.
Before her last breath, Mother Nature releases all her rage on humans –murderers of Nature but also of our own selves.
Flower on her marble gravestone, is the same flower on our own tombs.
