EARTH CARE

EARTH CARE:
Once upon a telling time
The storyteller told a rhyme
When icicles hung like feathered rime
No mourning song nor beat in time.

All seemed dead, but just asleep
And then the patter raised a peep
From under eyelids began to creep
The salty tears from years asleep.

Tears to wash away the missing
Of all the time missed passing
Life comatose but living
Feeling otherwise, wishing!

“Where are you my lovelies?”
Then all manner of creepies
Jumped across the pond of lilies
In answer to the call of Ceres.

She took upon herself the task,
Which man had failed to grasp,
Of caring for Earth’s many, basked
In ignorance of man still masked.

Creepies and crawlies knew better
As instinct follows to the letter.
This is how it is – no go getter
Until man awoke as the trend setter.

Patter of raindrops herald from hibernation
We all woke up to startling revelation.
We were at last awake from animation
And saw a strange new world of causation.

In time the path of meditation
Led us all to illumination.
Will we learn never to shun?
Caretakers way of respect and action.

    I hope he soon learns from his ignorance David.

    Blessings my friend

    Dear David,

    What a beautiful poem. It does indeed tell us the story of creation. Ceres, the other name for Mother Earth, made sure her sons and daughters would and could enjoy the bounties she had prepared for them. Unfortunately, she never realised her children would be so misbehaving.
    At times, she gets angry and destroys the gifts she had endowed the humans with, pulling in the same rage mother and child and all the rest, but then she calms down and regrets and loves again often even more profoundly than ever before. That’s how loving Mother Earth, the mighty Ceres, is for all of us.
    To quote you, as I so often do:
    We all woke up to startling revelation.
    We were at last awake from animation
    And saw a strange new world of causation.

    Let us stay awake and love each other and all that Mother Nature has asked us to take care of.

    Much love and light I wish for you and for all those who will read your post.
