"The Great Grief" is a tanka sequence I wrote from living with environmental degradation, and then empathizing with Per Espen Stoknes who defined it as:

"This more-than-personal sadness [as] ... a feeling that rises in us as if from the Earth itself…. that our individual grief and emotional loss can actually be a reaction to the decline of our air, water, and ecology."

My poem appears HERE in Unlikely Stories' 20th Anniversary edition. Congratulations to editor Jonathan Penton on US' 20th!
