Thank you...

Oh, how beautiful it is./ The tall, green form in front of me./ So tall, it covers me with its shadow./ It’s stems and leaves/ stand in different directions/ dancing free as the wind passes by./ It stand like a soldier in war,/ Full of confidence and strength./ It protects me under its shadow,/ engulfing me with warmth and peace./ Thank you./ Thank you for your presence./ The presence you’ve provided,/ It is more than I could’ve asked for./

Earth's desire is...

Earth's desire is how we should appreciate Earth as it is a place we Human beings live together called "home", where all humans live instead of destroying Mother Earth with pollution, deforestation, etc. This is the only planet we can survive on, we live under the production of resources from Earth. We all should go back to the place we once called "home" where it wasn't harmed.

We, this people...

Born from the same womb/of our Mother Earth’s, transient/shall make our actions permanent/imprinted upon the soil’s skin/the clouds, our handprints/and the sea our deep embrace.

We, this people...

We, this people, the people of the earth, should not have had influence over how the world works; we should understand our purpose, where we come from, and what makes us, us. We have strived and have waded through our struggles, put blood, sweat, and tears, to provide a helping hand for the earth, but even so, all of our hard work isn't enough We should all come to realization that the future is not promising, and that there is a significant risk of our grandchildren's children being wiped away.

Remember...

Remember the Earth as it was/Before it smoked and halted to a stop./Remember that they shined bright in spite of it all/Despite the bumps and bruises along the way./Remember how much it gives to us/As we try to stitch together the faults in a spherical beauty./Remember it now, because it keeps on rotating from time to time./Remember how it smells of lavender and love/Always welcoming us back with a homecooked meal./Remember them as they continue their journey beyond us all.

We, this people...

We, this people must come together to build a better future, Plastic rings in the sea, metal cans in the soil. Gas in the ozone, we, the people take everything for granted, humans never truly learn. How much more damage can spur? We, “the” people, please stop dreaming and start doing


Remember...

Remember the orange chalk they turned into fire. / Remember the fire under the refuse, / the dust that rises from it, the lungs / that breathe it. Remember / some things we throw away / or truck from place to place / don’t disappear: the half-life of human efforts, / the fire smoldering underground, / the water that carries and floods, warehouses and barrels / that rust. If it comes from the earth, / from a single location in the Congo, / but lives in the cells / of fathers and children in Missouri, / can we say it is natural? / Can we say it is historic? / Remember / the fires we create - / the ones that don’t go out -

Beach, your ocean has salty waves that crash and foam onto the sand/then pull and ripple back just to return again/beach, your ocean has spectacular little critters of all kinds/of variety and with so many colors and textures/beach your ocean makes glass, something so sharp and scary so soft, smooth, delicate, and special after it is provided to you/ beach, beach every time your ocean waves crash, the crashing of the waves flop and flood into my soul and unlocks more of my happiness/beach your warm and cozy sand feels amazing on my feet/then when I get to where your water and sand meet it is perfect to make sandcastles that fills my body with irresistible joy/Jumping over your waves is a treat to do/along with skim boarding, and boogie boarding/At the end of the day I am exhausted so I watch your beautiful sunset/as it reflects on the glowing water on my way back to the hotel I gather different shells and make jewelry with them.
