I write what I feel…

Earth Mother



Patiently nurturing body and soul

Fostering the feeling of coming home

Loving and giving her all

That they know she’ll be there forever

Fulfilling their wants and meeting their needs

So please, please don’t abuse her trust

Nor assume her kindness without return

Or Mother Earth will burn away

With no-thing left for another day

  1. Your beautiful poem and its sensibility to the Earth reminded me of The Wild Iris by Louise Gluck…do you know it?


  2. When her patience is drained
    by this human reign
    no trace will remain
    not one single stain
    of they who have caused her
    such pain.

    (Or in other words; payback’s a b**th)

    Paul Simon’s “Mother Earth” is a perfect fit for this super post Denise, give it a listen.



  3. i dont look forward to that day…
    i wrote tonight about a disaster that has happened here locally,
    though they say there will be no permanent damage…ugh…


    • There is always a permanent stain, Brian. I think people are still far too casual about the need for conserving our earth in as pristine a condition as we possibly can.
