Here’s a poem I wrote for this beautiful planet we call home.
To this beautiful planet that I call home
I don’t have enough words or enough languages to express how much I love you
The planet that cloaks us with its green blanket, supports us with its solid carpet, the planet that covers us with perfect blue skies
you give me the ephemeral sunsets and sunrises which keep their promise each day when they come to greet me everyday
you give us the perfect summer sky, the perfect stormy weather, the perfect snow, the perfect rain
each time I feel I have no reason to carry on
You take away my pain
With a birdcall, or a perfect sunshine.
You give us the perfect aquamarine seas and the grandiose ocean and the sandy beach
You give us the divine mountains and valleys
every creature unique
just like you and me.
Happy Earth Day!
