Our Supreme Mother,
knows nothing of the word: hesitate.
In the eye of a vicious and relentless storm.
Not one of Her making or choosing.
She stands: resolute and alone.
Struggling to survive, to flourish.
As forces beyond Her control,
Chip away at the majesty of our fading blue planet.
She has not failed us.
She will not give up without a fight.
And in return and in reply:
Can we afford to hesitate?
A poem that I wrote several years ago. I thought was fitting to share it once again, for Earth Day 2015.
For me, living a greener lifestyle is just second nature. I do what I can, every day, to reduce my carbon footprint and to be mindful of the small choices throughout the day, that really do matter, in the big picture. Choices that include: reducing, recycling, re-purposing, being a vegetarian, buying organics, watching electrical consumption, walking instead of driving or taking a bus…
Are you doing anything special to celebrate Earth Day?
