There on the top of the mountain
A tree reaching up to touch heaven
Branches holding hands out to God
The fingers splayed in supplication
The wind chanting through the leaves
A prayer of unison to send new birth
To the eroding environment on earth

There in the wondrous oceans
Waves reaching heights unknown
Lifting their white caps to heaven
In a prayer to make hardship known
That the seas are full of pollution
Beyond anything ever seen before
Many inhabitants are in dissolution
Please send help quickly to ocean floor

There in the populated valleys and hills
Towns, villages,  cities,  everywhere
People  gathering together all of one will
Hands upraised to God in fervent prayer
Sometimes we wonder if You hear us
We have not been good to Your creation
Our voices may sound like an unholy chorus
Yet we wait for answers in every Nation

THANK GOD FOR THE 'PLEAS' THAT COME FROM EVERY FACET OF CREATION...THE TEARS AND PRAYERS COME BEFORE HIS THRONE AND HE RESPONDS TO THEM WITH HIS MERCY AND HIS GRACE...THEREBY GIVING US MORE TIME TO TRY AND GET IT TOGETHER. DEFINITELY AN 'END TIME' APPEAL TO THE MASSES, DONE VERY WELL AND ENJOYED. THANKS FOR SHARING, EILEEN. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

Eileen, you've penned a soul searching prayer, as John so appropriately defined it, for the earth -- you reach out to everyone with your sincerity -- I bid you love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

Eileen,
This is my kind of prayer -
thoughtful, heartfelt, timely and badly needed.
It's so good to see you back, i missed you big time.

Yes indeed this awesome planet is crying out and her tears are unseen by many but thankfully there are some...like you and a few others on this site who hear her and who try to help her...I love your poem so much Eileen.

I love how you've given us this very strong image of the whole of creation reaching up, reaching out, in pleading, prayer and desperation, Eileen. We DO most certainly need to be united on something in these times and need a cause big enough to bring us all together. Yet who is the "deaf one" here? Seemingly Man rather than God, I think... blind also to see the need of the hour and to anything but immediate personal gratification. And it seems our "World Leaders" also have other priorities... This is profoundly stirring stuff and it's wonderful to have you posting again. Please stay awhile and spur us on with your insight and focus! Do hope you're well. xx

We continue to be our own worst enemy. I think God has stuck his fingers in his ears to avoid the unholy chorus. And we won't like the answer. Patrick
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 10/26/2011
All creatures on the planet are reaching for survival, as are we. Since we are thinking ones and not obligated to survive only by instinct, we should value our planet enough to do something about our need to survive and curb its robust activity. We are doing it to ourselves and only we can stop it. It's simply a choice.

A poignant piece for our time ET.

We have not been good to Your creation

We have been atrocious to His creation, and I cry as I look at all the devastation we have reaped, and that we continue to reap. And now that we're reaching 7 Billion of us on this planet, it will only get worse.

Amen! A most beautiful heartfelt prayer, you capture feelings and beauty, you dressed mother nature in innocence and glory as she should be, and as the creator dressed her in the beginning of time, I too, pray as you, every day, I shall adopt yours, for you have brought truth and beauty together in your appeal in a most beautiful poem. Thank you, and Hugs! Jasmin Horst

Welcome back chum ay chums ... hopin' all is weel wi' ye an' at yur healthy an' canty. I can surely hear your heart here, Eileen, anguishing for what man has wrought upon our beautiful planet. I can't help but think that we've crossed over the rubicon and are destined now, irrevocably, to reap what we've sown. "splayed in supplication" is a sobering strong image. Good to read your work again. Peace and love and hugs to you ... richard

Hey, sis, where you been & how you been? I have thought of you quite often & worried...this poem is of course quite timely & I got to say that I think God does not want to help us anymore, we have most certainly ruined his creations here so I would basically say, why should He...u take care of u...(tell brother Ed to stop pickin on me will ya...?)

Yes, so true are your words!!! We are destroying Mother Earth, it is so evident every day that passes...We have to start now, one by one, to help restore our resources...I am with you on this one...
Missed you ET hope all is well in your world.

Much peace, love and light,
