An excerpt from the story
There was once an old lady called Mother Nature. She lived in the mountains and she swam in the streams, and she brewed all the colours that I saw in my dreams.
She was tall and wide, and had trees for her thighs, and she listened and listened to the skies and the tide. She could jump between mountains and turn waterfalls to fountains, and she could swim in the sea much deeper than me.
She could run faster than leopards and protect sheep like the shepherds, and yet she cried like the tide as the planet died at her side.
She pleaded to the people to not litter the seas, and she asked them kindly to not fell the trees.
She shielded the animals from the hunters and thieves, and she begged them to leave the whales in the seas.
She soaked up the sun as its burning begun, and she tried and tried as her home slowly died.
But then YOU came running up by her side!
“Let’s save the planet!” you cried, as the animals cheered far and wide, and the trees stood up taller, side by side...
