Earth On Tantrums

I feed
From the seas around me
Drink from the rain drops in rivers
And farm the land

I fear being drowned
By that which gives me life in Japan..

And the earth cracks
Beneath oceans on tectonic plates 
Like two bulls, in head butt, red rage 
Repels of energy, they send waves on stampede

My hakama cloths torn by the forces
Comfort challenged by nature , and it rains
My land lay cracked and desolate
My soul in rage, my terra firma, burns 

Still  not long after I pray in clamminess 
The heavens will cry on me
To quench the thirst, I need its tears
I look to embrace the seas, the land, nature

Just so I can feed
The dependants of my soil
This is my understanding with nature
