The earth has a voice
It's not quiet at all
It sings from the small plants
And mountains so tall
Take care of your planet
That gives you so much
From the food that you eat
To the ground that you touch.
Inspiration for the art from the artist:
"One night during the height of Washington wildfire season (which is now a thing unfortunately and expanding each year) the sunset was this amazing red color. It was so beautiful but so terrible at the same time. As I watched this gorgeous sunset I realized this beauty was coming from a devastating and needless loss (the fires were due to human negligence). It got me all in my feels and I thought about how so many beautiful things are forged in pain and loss. But also, put out your fires people! I’ll take a boring sunset any day."
