Lindsay Hansen Park's "Where is Mother?" (2011)

Mother has living blood.
veins blue and moving,
like Earth.
She speaks soft,
as loud as shining morning.
Her skin is one thousand roads
driven on dust and rock and grit.
We suck Her sighs into our breast,
a breeze, breathing this whisper
from Heaven.
She bleeds, She bleeds,
can you hear Her?
