April Haiku #1238

I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.

april-haiku-1238

Today my prayer

did not include my backyard

or the birds within


Along with family,

what life other then ourselves?

life that is threatened


this green world of ours

a responsibility

carry our burden


we have destroyed land

created ecosystems

without any thought


yet we pray for us

not for the land we destroy

have we missed the point?


God is all of this

a balance between nature

we have skewed the scales

Yes, my friend. We have damaged this beautiful world and only if we begin to amend our ways now, will there be a chance to save our lives and for the future generation to come. Well expressed. Blessings to all. whonu

A beautiful description of what we are doing to the world and to ourselves. Wonderful poetry.
