Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

written for Earth Day
Some how She feels defeated
left to hold a heavy burden
to want to lift the earth
in her glistened hands
'n give it the light it needs
to shine once again.
A fight against man
and his demands to
temper with a wonderful
gift that nurtured any
want or need to feed
shelter and reproduce;
giving human kind an
everlasting life.
If she takes it back
with fury and revenge
there is nothing but dust
no light, song birds
or glistening sun.
She longs to give the chance
but given the circumstance
Mother Earth is afraid
that even her love
is not enough.
Yet she nurtures everyday
in the struggle against time.
She is begging, pleading,
importune: for man to
come to his senses and
give back to a divine sanction
that can carry forward
with life to prosper.
