Night sky
by J L

It has been said that we are just the universe experiencing itself.

If this is true, then to gaze at the night sky is to look back at our own past.

Strewn outward from the infinite cauldrons we call stars, this spectacle of light and vibration has spent eons in transit to get to us.

During this journey, all that we have ever known on earth has come and gone. Every pain ever felt. Every single human breath. Every word ever spoken. Every beginning and every end.

Like a child in the arms of our mother, we gaze upon from which we came.

Thanks To Nature
by Bhaskaranand Jha Bhaskar

Thank you for the air we breathe in
So that we can filter out
Dust and dirt;
Thank you for the water we drink
So that we can water plants, trees,
Green roots and ruts.

Thank you for the food we eat
So that we live to save the canopy
Of man and mankind;

Hear Our Children's Plea
by Dr. Robert Ippaso

A world tormented by impending doom,
Where children rally in huddled throngs,
Their lives polluted from the womb,
How now to right their parent’s wrong.

Corals fast bleaching,
Forests torn down,
Activists preaching,
While pastures turn brown.

i don't worry for the earth
by Jenna Lee

I don't worry for the earth
when I throw things to the dirt
I think she'll be just fine
I mean, aren't I?
does she think about my worth
when I'm falling, when I'm hurt
after a life of getting it right
why fight?
I won't fear for all the world
I'm just a man, I'm just a girl

Little Planet
by Kazuko Shiraishi

This little planet begins to have a headache
Since humans occupied it and took it out of God's hand
Green blood dries, earth's veins wither
The Whale gets harpooned before he sends singing Telepathy of Love
Big jet-flies circle the planet's head and turn the occident into a skull
Planets break their necks all thru 21'st century
Meanwhile killers get high on the God of Science
& cheer the big Arms race on
Kicking the globe in the head and puncturing its skin
Earth looks like it won't recover, too many humans busy watching T.V.

Safe My Home Earth Don’t Be So Feel With Pride And Blinded By Temporary Luxury (Poem) By Christen Kuikoua
by Christen Kuikoua

Dear future
I am Sorry
Sorry we used nature as a credit card
with no spending limits
over drafting animals to extinction
stealing your chance to ever see their uniqueness or become friends with them,
Sorry we poison the ocean so much that you can’t even swim in them,
But most of all sorry
for we lie to our mindset
and we had the nerves

Threatened blue world.
Rich earth's in His hands,
But, why such disrespect?

Face
by Vikram Balasubramanian

“Love of my life, you / Are lost and I am / Young again.” – Louise Gluck, “Vespers: Parousia”

Love of my life, you
Are lost and the sky is
Gone again.

How beautiful my garden is
full of things that belong to me,
and how dead the earth.

Lapis Lazuli Earth
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Deepest lapis lazuli earth of bluest skies,
Sparkling rich treasure of the Milky Way,
With colorful dawns and ruby butterflies,
We must nurture our world so it will stay.

Sparkling rich treasure of the Milky Way,
With rich history, not too soon forgotten,
We must nurture our world so it will stay,
And bluebirds may be heard in the garden.
