Lonnie Hicks is a spiritual poet from San Francisco. He writes a lot of spiritual and social commentary poetry. His website is here. Today’s spoken word is an environmental poem which lyrically describes the life of an aquifer that is slowly being depleted. There is a lot of biblical imagery in the poem but it provides a good context for the impact we have on our environment. The reading is delivered in the traditional poet’s style – a flat delivery, but his passion can be felt in and under his voice. A transcript of the poem is here. Enjoy.
