NaPoWriMo Poetry Challenge Day 22: Mother Earth

NaPoWriMo Poetry Challenge Day 22

The prompt: “…write a poem in honor of Earth Day. This could be about your own backyard, a national park, or anything from a maple tree to a humpback whale.”


Mother Earth~

You give life

and you sustain life.

I honour you today and always.

Mother Earth.

You continue to nourish us

and give of yourself so freely

while we continue to use, abuse and take you

for granted.

When will we realise that you’re the only one we’ve got

and we need to cherish you?

For you, for us and for future generations.

Sometimes you get angry with us

and dry up

or flood us with your tears.

I wish some of us would learn to honour you and

treat you well;

that they would stop poisoning your rivers, streams, oceans.

and life-sustaining soil.

We need you;

the birds of the air, fish in the sea and all the animals

and humans that call you home.

I honour you today Mother Earth.
