the earth, gentle
majestic
powerful
calm
from roaring rivers
to gentle streams
mountain tops
and forests green
man,
gentle
majestic
powerful
calm
from wallstreet
to homeless men
the suburbs
and queens
they've come
to destroy
this great earth
that took millions of years to create
yet the earth
still loves us
has no fear
struggling
weeping with despair
it absorbs the garbage
we lay at it's feet
takes no notice of the cars on the street
doesn't care if we're late
has plenty of time it will wait
we tell our selves this is true
when it's gone what will we do?

JulieAnn~
A nice tribute to Mother Earth.
She is surely stronger than we give
her credit for being.
Hopefully, we can create more of an
awareness so that she will be here
for the generations to come.

At first just the name caughtme, out of curiosity. You happen to have the same name as a very dear relative of mine. She writes poetry very similar to yours. I had to comment. This was strikingly beautiful. I wish more people thought about the Great Mother as you do dear.

this was a really good reminder of being good stewards of what God has given us..a beautiful earth....if everyone could raise their children to care, we'd be a whole lot farther along in this fight to keep earth clean and pure

good'un girl!

A good ethico-philosophic question to ask at the end.
