it weeps as a child

I see the world cry
it weeps as a child
for cosmically it is ill
and never at rest
the wind howls
and waters descend
they ascend and deploy
as tantrums to destroy
it knows not what it needs,
as a child never does,
but groan it will continue
until it’s pacified at once.

“For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.”

Romans 8: 22
