The earth loved the air

The earth loved the air
The air consumed it and the earth became
air and the air became earth
The trees stretched their branches
heavenwards and consumed the air
The trees broke away from
the earth and became
human beings
Everything is alive and in motion
Even at the centre of the earth
there are sparks of life

Thousands of centuries passed and
pain was born
A little smile
Then hope disappeared
The smile died
And generations trampled upon generations
