a poetry offering

Stopping by meadow on a dewy morning

Sun bolts reach for morning dew

Inviting drops to skies anew

While soil steeps deep in sinking mists

So creatures there can drink their due.

With joyful song life’s healing bliss

Wafts over as a loving kiss

Reminding now that nature mends

Herself and us though mostly missed.

While currents rise to dance with wind

Sea’s body home to whale and fin

We worry, prattle, heave and take

From oceans, soil, air, and lake.

When will we see our own mistake?

What will it take for us to wake

To nature’s bounty for our sakes

A healing world is ours to make
