Feet Upon It
Today is Earth Day. Be kind to our earth. It’s the only one that we have.
I was inspired to write this poem by the many beautiful posts from Tyler.

Feet Upon It
Dust and mist
Hovers just above
As slight as a dove
Boulders and rocks
Like the flocks in the sky
Humidity in the air
Space to share
Lush and sand
Light and dark
Treats us so well
Lessons to learn
With your feet upon it
Be gentle with your hand
On the country
That your feet stand
Central Park, New York City USA, July 2012
Happy Earth Day…….lovely poem to commemorate. Thank you.
Thank you and to you as well.
Short and sweet! I love it because it says everything in a nutshell. Central Park Reference is the perfect spot.
Thank you for noticing that.
Happy Earth day to you.
Stunning photo. Lovely poem 🙂
Thank you Jade.
And thank you for always taking the time to say a little something.
I appreciate it.
Happy Earth Day.
No worries, your poems are great – you can tell by your blog figures! It’s a pleasure to read them.
I admire the economy of your words in this one…. tastefully done!
Thank you. Happy Earth Day to you.
“Be gentle with your hand / On that country / That your feet stand.”
Powerful message – sparse and direct – and I love the title – thanks for sharing this.
Thank you doesn’t ever seem to be enough to express the gratitude that I feel when people share with me their thoughts on my poetry. It’s been such a new journey for me (I’ve been writing poetry for 2 weeks) I am learning to trust myself and my words and your positive input surely helps to fuel the fire of passion that’s burning! I love choosing the titles.
Ah, well – good for you! I love writing poetry – it is a great way to express myself – I wish you lots of luck with your new endeavor.
Reblogged this on The ancient eavesdropper and commented:
Thank you, Jennifer, for the shout out to me in your wonderful poem! I am deeply humbled that I inspired you to write about nature. For my followers, if you haven’t met Jennifer yet, she is an amazingly talented and thoughtful poet and kindred spirit of mine whose blog I recommend you visit (https://writingsofamrs.wordpress.com). Hope everyone is having a beautiful Earth Day wherever you reside! Cheers, Tyler 🙂
Kindred spirits Tyler.
Thank you so much for reblogging my post and for inspiring me.
You nailed it so gracefully.
Oh my, what to say other than thank you, you are too generous with your words.
This was a great piece. Love to hear more from you!
Thank you. I have many other poems if you scroll on down.
I’ve stood in that exact spot
It’s remarkable isn’t it? I lingered and pondered there for a while.
We didn’t have a lot of time to research everything before our vacation so we didn’t know what to expect from central park.
Finding this was like a hidden gem.
New York is such a unique city.
We went from Boston to New Port then to New York City.
Do you live in New York or did you vacation?
New York is my home..I work abroad, but it is one of the places i go to when I am home…rain sleet or snow…I must see it…I have a lot of memories there…
Jennifer, beautiful blog interwoven with great energy. Thanks so much for visiting over at my ‘place’ and liking some of my musings. Great to meet you here. I look forward to following your directionless journey! Peace and be very blessed. Michele
I paid you a visit and posted more in depth on another comment of yours.
Great to meet you too! My favorite part of this journey has by far been the writings, musings, poetry and thoughts of so many fantastic, beautiful, gifted people.
simply beautiful and rewarding
Beautiful piece – I am happy that Tyler reblogged it:) Btw, NYC is awesome. I lived there for a year and someday I would love to go back. I currently live in the Chicagoland area – the Windy City is nothing compared to the Big Apple!!
Yes, Tyler has a fantastic blog doesn’t he!?
New York City is definitely a great city with a lot to see and do.
I live in Ontario Canada.
What a fitting tribute — good for you. Thanks, too, for liking my latest post. Now that I think about it, this was a good day for me to talk about respect and public responsibility…!
Indeed it was. (everyday is!)
Such lovely words, so fitting for Earth Day. Just beautiful 🙂 x
Thank you! And thank you for taking the time comment, I really appreciate it,
You’re welcome, I’m glad I came across your blog – you have a great writing style! 🙂 x
