April Haiku #1238

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started sharing poetry articles back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.

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
