Speculation by a first nations’ voice about beliefs of the strangers who are rumoured to be coming to the forest.
Mother Nature is not just the song bird, pretty fawn and sunny weather. She is the ill-tempered badger, slimy slug, and smelly skunk cabbage. She is the range of all living things.
A description of single-celled creatures in a microscopic world constantly hunting and being hunted, eating and being eaten.
Happy Holidays From Our Home To Yours
Neil continues to draw inspiration from the natural world without indulgent sentimentality, knowing “Mother Nature has no mind /or conscience. She eats her kind,” but with a passionate conviction that he must answer the question his mentor, Chief Dan George proposes: “Have I done all that I can to keep the forest? Have I kept the air fresh as your day?”
Mother Nature Eats Her Kind is Neil’s second environmental book of poetry. Mother Nature is pounding at our door. The question is not whether she will survive. The question is, will we? The choice is still in our hands.
