Take a canvas big as earth...paint it midnight blue
Synchronize this mass with stars
Bleached and shining through
Then sketch a moon so grand with charm
In golden shades and hues
Of illuminating phosphorous
In ochre's, whites and blues
A comet shooting...tail afire
Trailing through the sky
Passed novas smiling eyes so big
As angels wave bye bye
A swing to sway imagining
With dreams to see us through
And all the pains of life are gone
With nature and her crew
You see the grand finale
As rainbows pallet fills
With each and every raindrop
That slides down natures hills
Kaleidoscopes of crystal tint
To wash the earth with color
A brush so fine of sable hairs
To make the clouds look fuller
Pastures green with dusted dew
As tears that linger here
Among each blade of slender growth
As mirrors of her tears
For man is tender of this earth
And master of his ways
If we can't do earth better
Then soon we'll live to pay
When negligence can come to call
Scorn us...demand her pay
When earth was full of true r hues
And we saw her grander days.

A wonderful and professional synopsis of the state of play in our world !
You paint the easel of literature with great ease and natural balance, your Dad taught you well !
I have to say, I believe the Earth is heating up because of Man's gross interference with Nature..
It's high time America, China and India signed up to the Kyoto Treaty on the Environment, or I reckon we will vanish like the Mayans !
Love and Peace

Beautifully done, Susan. You gave us the photo with words and painted it exquisitely and passionately. Disagree with you about how we treat the earth. Man is foolish if he thinks he can undo what has been put here. Can he affect it? Yep. Just like it has been affected by many different thing lo these many centuries. Yes, I know. Things are different now. We have ways to destroy that we didn't have then. Yup. Still, the earth will muddle along and our phoney-baloney global-warming will not change her all that much. This isn't the first time the earth has warmed, if in fact, it is warming. Cycles. The climate goes in cycles. Good poem.
