The Earth flag is not an official flag, since ...

The Earth flag is not an official flag, since there is no official governing body over Earth. The flag holds a photo transfer of a NASA image of the Earth on a dark blue background. It has been associated with Earth Day. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

Forgive me for not keeping up with National Poetry Month and #30poems30days but here is my homage to Mother Earth.

 

 

 

Earth Day

 

a birthday

 

a celebration day

 

a rejoice day

 

because today

 

and everyday

 

she does

 

she provides us

 

with everything we need

 

to survive!

 

God graces her with

 

water for drinking

 

wind for power

 

sunshine for warmth

 

plants for nourishment

 

trees for shelter

 

and seasons for change

 

let’s do better

 

and treat her kindly

 

because without her

 

life would be impossible

Earth Day

green

has many reasons for existing

The Earth flag is not an official flag, since ...

it comes in handy

when you need a little change

it’s an action word

when we recycle and reuse

it’s  the nutrition

that helps our bodies maintain

it covered the paths

our ancestors walked on

before construction

green is a  living breathing thing

it is powerful

creates wealth

and encourages

both a human and environmental poverty

it”s necessary

for sustaining

us to eat, grow, and love

haiku for grace  (That classic hymn, Amazing Grace popped in my head while I was in the shower this morning and as a result, inspired this poem. Enjoy!)

His amazing grace

still saving wretches like me
