earthapp

download the earth app
see how she is
beautiful

zoom into the detail
taste her hills and
valleys

capture the perfume
in her Himalayan
rains

touch every crevice
to read her sad
stories

feel anger at her neglectful
masters who do not
care

wonder at each horizon
why she drowns in her
oceans

download the earth app
see how beautiful
she was

Go on, give me some feedback..
