Mother earth

world-in-his-hands

Can earth be Earth when all it’s trees are gone,
And sudsy waters have become unfit,
And poisoned life no longer greets the dawn
With raucous sounds that death has caused to quit?
Will trees no longer wave, with limbs unfurled,
On hapless earth, that ever in orbit roams?
Will human ego sacrifice the world
To satiate its lust for pompous homes?
Will distant space look down on orb that’s bald.
I now can hear the mother say,
“I was once called Earth.
But now , bereft of mirth, I weep.
That treeless orb’s no longer Earth”

  1. Thank you for sharing poetic reality of man’s indifferent arrogance.

  3. If we don’t change our ways this planet will soon be a charred black ball with nothing more than a few surviving ashes of another world and place when it was alive and well.

  4. Rather dramatic view of potential outlook for Earth. Will it happen? Is it happening?
    Saw it as a possibility some 40 years ago. Human beings are at least thinking about it now.
