I tasted the dawn of promise

Life is so much more than ME

I looked into the eyes of BEING

It encompasses all of creation

All of which cries out for notice

Notice of what requires thought

Thoughts that edify heart and soul

Souls that need spiritual embracing

Humanity hungering for help and love

Landscape that needs careful tending

Animals that we are all responsible for

Our planet and all of its elements are

Our concern, we need to be more aware

Of all things besides ME that has needs

Our waters are still being poisoned

 Stripped rain forests are losing their power

We are obliged to do more than complain

Expand our vision to include universe

Take our minds off  SELF to improve US

Inspire each other to see with new eyes

Open our ears to sounds besides music

Come out of our cocoon to see the world

A world that is dying for lack of our care

With many in poverty  their cubbards  bare

Earth day should be celebrated every day

Before exhorbitant bills come ,that we can't pay

Earth Day should be every day, as you so powerfully said. What we've done to ruin Creator's planet is sinful. A poignant, thought provoking call for change, effectively penned. Now, if people will heed the warning, before it's too late...thank you, my friend.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

You sound a timely and dutiful warning here to the naysayers in our midst, who turn a deaf ear and hard heart to the injustices in our world, the inequalities in our society, and the irreparable damage that is being waged on our Planet and Environment, by the ravages and excesses of Mankind !
If we don't heed this urgent warning, and quickly remedy the situation, we are staring at utter oblivion and obliteration for the inhabitants of Earth !
