Hug the ground

Hug the ground
The beautiful ground
That touches the sky
The earth where we're bound
That's under our houses
Our highways
Our nose
That's stable for now
In the future 
Who knows
Drifting
Shifting
Eroding through time
And who knows the damage 
We do when we mine
And the new landscapes to come
Who can tell
With so many earthquakes
And sinkholes to hell
Mother nature could 
Brush us out of her way
We should be thankful
We've survived to this day

    Jon What a powerful and deep message in this greatly rhymed poem. You are giving the reader a lesson about taking care of the earth or it will not take care of us. Nice job my friend Thanks for the funny and sweet comment on my Inner Kindness poem. Hugs

    So true Jon! Yes we should be thankful... and nature, as we know her, should be wary that she survives our heavy 'hand'... Terry (happy to see you've returned after too long an absence...)
