Fall Leaves

 
Leaves turning, signal fall. All of them will flutter down to earth, dying away; nourish the cold, hard ground.

Cold winds blow, fall ends and winter begins. Hibernating bulbs will softly sleep until the next spring thaw.

Earthquake Temper Tantrum

Splitting soil and rock; quaking, 
shaking dance of death.
Land and sea alike,
Well shaken; no stirring here; 
an earthquake, temper tantrum.

Earth's Gift

Bright red and grown
Held in one's hand
Once was sown
Now picked from the land
A piece of nature's beauty
Handle with care
For it is Earth's gift to share

The next red hot real estate market

Earth's death seems to be in our stars
End comes from the greed planet's scars
But the rich have reach
And will visit the beach
Near estates they've purchased on Mars

Short Earth Day poem by Melani Udaeta| Details | |

In the Meadow

In the meadow I stumble 
upon the Earth's last flower;
My eyes overflow with tears
this beauty long forgotten;
An extinction of color,
to be just a memory; 
We are blind, left black and white.

A worrying Flower's Wisdom

Whether I will wither in the warmth
Or wilt with the weather,
I worry wildly!

For I'd rather,
    Weep with wounds when wrapped into a wreath
Than
     Get wrenched (plucked) away worthlessly!

Gaia

Glowing bluesy marble out in space Centrifugal spin never ends Swirl of “Crayola” colors Dance in the universe I wish I could dance Out there with you And all the Others Too.

Short Earth Day poem by Andy Craig| Details | |

Along the canal

Along the canal bank I

go, another day wandering

just a quiet stroll. Watching

the Swans as they happily

glide past, wagging tails and

a trail of five signets. This is

my walk of sweet bliss

Short Earth Day poem by Zoe Isaacson| Details | |

Recycle

Recycle
Everything
Cans
Yams
Crates
Letters
Everything

Because every time you recycle
Life starts another cycle
The flowers will spring up
The landfills will disappear
And Earth can remain beautiful

She Gives And Gives

This womb, Earth has many children; all sprung from her precious womb. Some swim, some fly, some crawl or walk; but they all share her many gifts. Earths generosity never stops; she gives until she dies.

ANTICIPATING DEATH


I AM DISAPPEARING 
INTO THE EARTH
DAY BY DAY
INCH-BY-INCH
CELL-BY-CELL

MY BODY IS PULLED DOWN
UNTIL ONLY MY HEAD STICKS UP

LOOKING INTO THE CROWDS
HEARING THEIR CRIES
FEELING THEIR PAIN
SMELLING THEIR SWEAT
TASTING THEIR FLESH
ANTICIPATING DEATH

Universes

This colorful round ball,
floating rock in a painted sky…
just one of many.

The universe has many children;
stories abound here as
ancient rocks speak.

Every planet has a story to tell,
backed up by celestial music, 
even a brown dwarf,
captivates the imagination.



Short Earth Day poem by Flora Mae Gudez| Details | |

A Mother's Cry

"Tap! Tap!" the drop
of Her tears.
Pouring on the
ground from the
clouds of fear.

'Roar! Roar!" Her
thunderous shout.
From the pain She
felt, She cried out.

"Woosh! Woosh!" She
breathed fast.
"Why my love?" She
asked.

How poor Mother
Earth was.
Tortured by her
children, She sent
Haiyan to us.

Short Earth Day poem by Neldy Jolo| Details | |

TREE HAS NO FAULT

Trees are lives.
They protect environment and people.
They hold the earth.
People kill them. 
They shed people. 
They keep quite when people cut them.
They curse people when time comes. 
They have no faults if flood comes.
Don’t blame them if earth is hot.
Stop illegal cutting of trees.
Start planting them!

Short Earth Day poem by Leo Larry Amadore| Details | |

Sieze the Day

(Earth Day, 2014)

New life emerges;
Seasons change...
fragile Earth survives another day...

We scan our universe for origins
(and endings), extending vision
ever farther, reaching for utmost limits...

So much to learn --
trial and error, trial and error
(preponderance of error)...

and new life emerges. 
Fragile Earth
survives another day.

Short Earth Day poem by Connie Marcum Wong| Details | |

Precious Descendants

Oh white wave
Mistress of the sea,
And you, bright fame
Of the island;

Together you teach
The one who is like God;
A heavenly flower
That blooms with your touch.

Protected under the
Wings of constancy
Rejoice, for your
Grandmother is a Pearl;

Cloaked in iridescent white,
Layers upon layers,
She shines in her
Wealth of wisdom.

Connie Marcum Wong

The ashes


 The day is bright and I'm happily awakened
 by the gift of daylight, the sky is clear but a
 few wisps of scattered clouds. I lay and stare
 these clouds slowly drifting past, a dragon 
 breathing fire next two cherubs with bows 
 of desire. I wonder will I be engulfed in fire,
 burnt to ashes like the Phoenix and rising up 
 a new free bird.

'God's Good Earth': a condensed sonnet

The fierce, graceful tiger
(a fearsome, wild beast)
is not meant as dinner
for someone's lavish feast.
The giant, harmless whale
(a great, ocean mammal)
won't survive or prevail
against ruthless people.
All Earth's feral creatures,
of land, the sky, and sea,
are here as our teachers
and life's diversity.
   Save man's endangered worth
   and restore God's good Earth.



Short Earth Day poem by Abdulhafeez Oyewole| Details | |

Agape

_____WHILE ON EARTH_____
...And so there are many sea that beautify the earth!
So there are many mask still dim
And source of considerable mirth

Earth- its whole is a unique hue
And the sea and the cloud and the wings and the hills
...And so there are still many gigantic queue!

On land we herd animal
And on it, we mammal lives
... And so on it we born and die as a trial.



Short Earth Day poem by Gary Fields| Details | |

Shephred On




I follow you there
And be thy sheep
Do doth' memory
Let the sanctified sheep
Slumber as the sleep
      ------
Fore there is a measure
With-out measure beyond
       .... Compare
For those who receive the Cloth
     Restoration is there
   With peace and love
Far beyond compare...
You can feel it in the air
It is every where...

Holiday in Love

Holiday in Love 
I want to love you more 
But I have not written one day in order to Mark 

Every day 
Every day I love you 
Every day is getting my love 
Every day in order to dedicate my heart 

I do not like that I love in one day 
I do not like to have a brief love in one day 
I want to be all the days of my life in order to love 
And I will stay true to my love to another day in my life


Short Earth Day poem by Vicki Darcy| Details | |

SUNRISE

Sunrise...

Sunrise comes and sunrise goes,
Whereabouts, nobody knows.

Across the earth day by day,
We see the light and then we play.

At night the sun, it's gone from view,
The moon and stars come to renew.

The sky is darkened but not for long,
For in the morning the sun will shine strong.

Then we'll start a brand new day,
And no mention of this miracle, will we say.


Written by Vicki Darcy.

Natural wonders

Natural wonders,
tremendous natural
structures. 

The white
cliffs of Dover to the
Grand Canyon in
Arizona. 

From the
slopes of the Alps to
the Himalayas peaks.
What magnificent feats.

We marvel over these
landscapes, astonishing
creations. 

Will wonders
never cease, we have
yet to look beneath
the seas.

Take in the truly
amazing feat, the
exquisite abundance of
the Great Barrier Reef.

Short Earth Day poem by Andy Craig| Details | |

Colours

Emerald green with a sheen

 of happiness. Sunflower yellow

 to warm that cold morning.

 Sky blue fills the mind with

 a breath taking view. Red sky

 at night fills our hearts with

 delight. White snowfall upon

 the moors, softens our hearts

 so pure. Brown trees, colours

 that put us at ease. Tall gentle

 giants with fallen autumn leaves,

 red orange and yellow, what a

 wonderful medley.

Short Earth Day poem by Kimberly Berry| Details | |

without a light

i roamed the earth day to day
 searching for my love
summer sun light my way

falls own change,i've lost my way.
 at last here you are
has a sudden breeze brought you?

we roamed with song and hope
 searching for a way
summer sun has left my eyes.

falls own cold has froze my heart
 left me here out of hope
my blindness has trapped me now

with broken wing and worried mind
 a chance of escape
he left me alone without a light.
 

Short Earth Day poem by Merle Manu| Details | |

prayer

the world is my oyster
I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in 
green pastures
a bird in the hand is worth two 
in the hand
thou shalt not steal
you have the right to remain 
silent
thou shall not bear false 
witness
anything you say can be held 
against you
Thou art my rock and my 
comforter
Love bears all things, hopes all 
things,
believes all things;
the earth should be green,
the sky blue,
the water clear
and the air clean

Short Earth Day poem by Whitley Fields| Details | |

I AM UNIVERSE

Burning fire,
And solid rock,
Gas fuming,
Shooting and so hot,
Twinkling, I'm not.

I'm bursting flames,
of high degrees,
Moving clouds of methane,
And cold breeze.

Bluer that Earth's cloudless skies,
Questionable living,
And countless why's.
Theories,
And wonders of my atmosphere,
Millions and billions of years,
Hundreds and thousands of orbits I've witnessed,
Like wood rings of living oak,
My burning gases,
That'll never smoke,
I AM UNIVERSE!
