Don’t Cry For Earth

April 23, 2010

Don't Cry
Step aboard little one
Welcome to this plane!
Here you will learn
As much as you care
Your every need be met
Nurture and succor
Love is the lesson
Love is the path

Just watch our mother
Her endless toil
A smorgasbord for every delight
Cleaning and energizing
The air, the land, the water
Make no mistake, our mother loves us
She will not stop

Though we are passing through
Twirling through space
A short stay in this place
A heavenly beauty blue and green
Dancing around the sun
With drunken partying
We trash and burn
Our lust for more
No end in sight

Still she serves us daily
Like a gentle mother
She takes no sides
Let them live and learn

Our mother heals herself well
Every cut and burn restores
Every season will come
So don’t cry for Earth
Cry for those
Whose hearts are dry
A wasteland of broken dreams
Show them love
For that is what they need

Oh Miruh – this is a beautiful poem. I just love this “Cry for those Whose hearts are dry A wasteland of broken dreams”

From my heart to yours, Thank You.

I love this poem, Miruh! My favourite lines are…”Like a gentle mother
She takes no sides
Let them live and learn” I do hope we all learn quickly!

I think, if you don’t mind, this poem will go on my bulletin board, where things of beauty and love are placed. Thank you.

Hello Nicole,

Yes, loving-kindness and compassion is the healing balm for those who plunder and destroy, not knowing what they are searching for.

I am happy that these words warm your heart.

May you be soothed by Earth’s tender embrace!

Hello Marion,

“Things of beauty,” I love that phrase. I wanted to write something beautiful for Earth day, in keeping with the motto of this blog, to inspire, to uplift.

To have the perspective that this is all about a learning experience, gives space for everything, that there is perfection in this too.

It would be my pleasure to have my poem grace your bulletin board.
Thank you!

May you long laugh and dance around the sun!

Hi Miruh,

This is so touching. It speaks on many levels and it is heard on many more levels. Thank you for sharing this masterpiece my friend.

Soft waves of peace.

Hello Alexys,

I am glad that these words speak to you, my contemplation on Earth Day.
A reminder that the time we have on this planet is short, to make the best use of it to learn the lesson that Earth teaches: Love is everywhere.

Thanks for your generous comment.

And may you too be embraced in soft waves of peace!
