Enough For All

ENOUGH FOR ALL 
by Wordancer

All the species of this world, whether mammal, fish or bird
Are provided with their food, whatever their taste
Each created for the other,
When the offspring leaves the mother
There is all the food that’s needed without waste.

The ants will feed the lizard, and in turn, it feeds the Hawk 
The flies they feed the spiders, then the frogs.
The amphibian feeds the snake 
Which the Kookaburras take 
And in time, they all feed ants inside the logs.

The logs fall from mighty trees that house and feed the tiny bees
that fertilize the plants we use as foods.
With rain and sun the crops will flourish
And when harvested, they can nourish
All the peoples in the world, if we so choose

Foods for all the nations are here in God’s Creations,
Glorious is the spirit that’s big enough to care.
Food goes where it’s needed
If our sight is not impeded 
Or we keep it for ourselves when there’s enough for all to share.

In this world of ours we’re brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers,
We’re all related by living on this earth.
Whatever we do tomorrow
Can bring happiness or sorrow
Today is when we work out what it’s worth.

    Thank you Silvia for enjoying this story in verse. My first attempt at posting my nature poetry met with rejection by the site, "too long", so I am thrilled this story is accepted and honoured in the recognition. I found some inspiration on your page, too, Thank you Wordancer Wordancer

    Thank you, Samuel for reading, and for your special comments. It is good to meet like spirited humans. Apparently some of my nature inspired poems are too long for Poetry Soup! I didn't know there is such a restriction. never mind, I'll just have to curtail my enthusiasm!! Wordancer is dancing
