Earth's Organ System

water is the blood & breath
of the earth
with the sun & moon acting as
the controlling mind;
each organism an organ
sustained by
this life-giving flow.

Thought of like this,
would it not make sense
to ponder
if the human's role
is equivalent to that
of a virus?

On inspiration for this piece: This idea was pulled from Poetic Asides's 2015 April PAD Challenge: Day 16. "For today’s prompt, write a science poem."  It took me awhile to unearth this piece, but I think it fits well enough.
