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

 

Water flowing,

Plants growing,

Life showing

 Dust and mist

Hovers just above

As slight as a dove

 Boulders and rocks

Mountains

Towering high

Like the flocks in the sky

 Humidity in the air

Space to share

 Wetlands,

Woods

                                                                                           Desserts

                                                                                              Reefs

 Lush and sand

 Light and dark

 This planet

Treats us so well

Lessons to learn

In giving

In nourishing

 

Our planet,

 With your feet upon it

 

Be gentle with your hand

On the country

That your feet stand

      Hi Bonnie,
      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.

    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 🙂

      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?

      Michelle,
      Many thanks.
      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.

    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!!

    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…!
