Remember...

Remember the leaves it’s natural cover: green leaves, orange leaves, red leaves, brown leaves, leaves cover us. Think about the protection the leaves give us. Think about each leaf, and its purpose to live, die, then cover the ground. Each leaf represents us, and our lives.

Remember...

Remember the simplicity of waking up each day Enjoy the wind and seek peace along the way Remember the birds chirping happily in their nest Become inspired to feel your best Remember the sun which beams upon the earth Shining on everything, no matter its worth Remember that Nature is an open book at the worlds disposal Remember to read it well, for it is very jovial.

Remember the whispers of trees, their ancient tales, Know the rhythm of rivers, how they flow and bend. Remember the fire within, burning bright and bold, Remember your roots, buried deep in the earth's embrace. Remember, always, the dance of life, in every step, unfold.

Remember...

In the rhythm of the wind, where memories sway, Harjo's verses linger, guiding my way. "Remember," she whispers, a sacred call, Echoes in my heart, like leaves in fall. Through the rivers of time, her words cascade, A gentle reminder, no essence can fade. In the dance of the trees, their roots entwined, I find my own Remember, in the echoes combined. To the pulse of the Earth, a harmonious song, In the cadence of Remember, I too belong. Through sunsets and dawns, in the celestial ember, I respond to Harjo's Remember.


Remember...

Remember the clouds, drifting by, Painting stories in the sky. Watch them dance, free and high, Nature's canvas, an endless supply. Remember the stars, shining bright, Glimmers of hope in the dark night. Gaze at them, dream and soar, In their endless tales, we explore.

Peter Gerbasi
New York

Remember...

Manifesto...

Go out and be free Get perspective. Be humbled by the tallest trees, And by the smallest pebbles Gaze upon the setting sun From a mountain or valley Feel the ocean breeze And the next day the snow And the next the desert sand See the true wild, before its gone Never remain in one place Let everywhere be unfamiliar Let nowhere be everywhere

Something sacred...

Something sacred is this earth. The flowers that bloom, the animals that flourish. It’s all taken advantage of as that is all we have ever had and don’t see a future when it is ruin. Take care of the earth as it provides for you. And you will see the wonders it has to offer.

Remember...

Remember the garden's vibrant bloom, each petal holding a memory untold. Listen to the whispers of flowers, tales of sun kissed days and nights so bold. Remember the rustle of fallen leaves, crunching beneath your youthful feet. Talk to the trees, guardians of time, they hold the stories of moments sweet. Remember the cool touch of riverbanks, where laughter echoed in the summer air. Listen to the babbling stream, revel in the memories that linger there. On this Earth Day, let memories unfold, like petals and leaves, treasures to behold. Talk to the past, embrace it with care, for in those moments, love and nature share.

Remember is a reflection on our connection, convincing us to recall our origins, appreciate nature, and recognize the tapestry of life. The poem's rhythmic repetition and personification breathe life into the universe, inviting active engagement with our surroundings. The symbolism of earth tones celebrates diversity, while inclusive language reinforces our shared humanity. Ultimately, it affirms our inseparable link to the universe, encouraging contemplation on the perpetual motion of life.

Remember...

Remember the cacti, for they are much like many of us / They show their sharp, painful spikes on the outside and possess a tough thick flesh / But when you get to know one on the inside, it can provide quenching water in even the driest and hottest of deserts / Give one time and it will reveal to you its beautiful flowers and fruit / Remember the cacti for who they truly are, not who they seem like on the surface.

Vincent
New York

I am...

Boulders shatter from stone and break into rock. Crumbled pebbles settle into the soil to make the land. Grass and flowers blossom into vibrant meadows. Rain pushes rivers to fill the lakes and oceans. Whether savage desert or gleaming forest across the map, they were all created from mud, sand, and earth. No instructed design, only glowing support while we build. A bloom can become a jungle, and a hill maybe a mountain. There is no such thing as forlorn clay, only magnificent dirt.
