Spin

Within a blink,
earth spins and goes.
As nature shrinks,
capital grows.

Nurturing dies,
drowning in time.
Hurricanes cry,
humans defy.

Here to just take,
no giving acts.
Infested lakes,
more signed contracts.

Corrupted system
to be deferred.
Earth is a victim,
with pleas unheard,

The honey bees,
fly just to flee.
Cut forest trees,
polluted breeze.

Lingering kill
connections fall.
The world stands still
as nature calls.

Absorbing light
and all sun rays.
Hold on for life
and better days.

Feel comfort in
this cozy dome.
As the world spins,
treat it like home.

  1. This is such a beautiful poem, Grace. It resonated with me very much as an eco-aware/minded personβ€”so much truth in your words. I’ve seen your name pop up on several people’s blogs, so I thought I’d visit you to see what you write. I like what I’ve found and will, hopefully, catch up with some more of your posts as soon as I can. The picture you have at the top of this post is just amazing ~ Ellie x
