Stranger Skies

Updated on September 17, 2016


Why are we here, placed upon this, our earthen soil, we all hold so dear,

Was the reason to advance, then to leave this world, our brilliant sphere?

Could, perchance, we were each meant to manage, of this property, care,

Acting as stewards, preserving all life, this gift of breath, with all to share?


Every living thing, from bluest oceans to greening landscapes, supreme,

Each has the right to exist, of their lives, to persist, chase each sunbeam.

Experiencing the air so pure, of this, the need to endure, retain its wealth,

Never, should anyone have this world undone, by crookedness, or stealth.

all living things have their place in the chain of life...
all living things have their place in the chain of life...


When mankind lets all down, each welcoming smile is changed to a frown,

The species loose, everyone, as the course of life is run, extinction bound.

A precious link, creatures upon this earth, all a wonder, of greatest worth,

Smallest ones to creep, to the greatest, all to keep, expect a life from birth.

all deserve a chance from birth...
all deserve a chance from birth...


The creator of us all, the architect, deity, our progenitor, no benevolence is finer,

Fashioned in images of our originator, a maker of the worlds, grandest designer.

As we in turn, seem never to learn, our charges to watch over, every life to earn,

While the sun shines its light by day, the moon at night, the galaxies all to churn.

Will we all learn one day that we must preserve our world and not destroy it?
Will we all learn one day that we must preserve our world and not destroy it?

      Beautiful, as always. I love the reference to the God as the grand designer of the skies. It is His majesty that causes us to gaze upon the wonder of creative sky expressions.

      Stewardship is an important topic, and a lesson that is not taught often enough. Thanks for this poem that brings it to our attention.

      Whonu, this is the perfect answer to the question, "why are we here?" We have a job to do and that job is to love and nurture. Why do so many people think that job description is limited to loving and nurturing other humans?
