To appreciate our planet start with its snow-capped mountains where sunbeams morph crystals of ice into gems of glistening light. Witness white clouds traverse the skies floating on a vista of blue or a setting sun smear scarlet onto puffs of marshmallow white. See jungles at its equator create a sash of vibrant green and burnt sands ripple its deserts with shifting dunes of tans and creams. See its leafy forests change from deciduous to evergreen and tundra pitted with blue lakes fade to stretches of virgin snow. Watch volcanoes erupt in flame spewing plumes of ebony smoke and lava bleed from gaping wounds while giving birth to molten earth. See azure and aquamarine waves crested with white foamy froth or tilted poles capped in ice sparkling like crystalline jewels. View it from afar as it twirls in the vacuum of space like a phantasmagorical cerulean marble, called Earth. Written 02/02/2016 I was pleased to see that this poem won poem of the day, resonating with so many people. Our planet is such a beautiful blue gem set against the velvet blackness of space. Nature is awesome and our phantasmagorical planet is a prime example of God's ability to touch our souls through our senses, drawing us closer to Him.

It's great to see this gem in the 2020 PS Anthology. I love all the imagery but most particularly the lines "and lava bleed from gaping wounds while giving birth to molten earth"

If positive is helping, then good,but I'd prefer to hear the truth as I view page- Vultures-angry/disdain. Arb'traitors- sleep well at night? What is point being bout rubbish poems? if rubbish poems?P/litely ask to refrain/from 'tempting! I think it is M/BRRssNG to soothe the up an coming's brow if they're basically working through dilemmas in their own world, Jeese! how much time needed ! time is short. Get a sort of grip, Where lay-eth or lieth the true art of the rose and prose in hand!?

Hello Emile, Somehow I missed this absolutely wonderful poem you wrote and posted back in February 2016. It's magical!! I must say this one is a SEVEN/FAVE for sure in my book!! The words, the imagery, and the interweaving of thoughts from stanza to stanza are superb!! (The "Blank Verse," although I've been aware of it, is not one I've yet attempted to do, but plan to do so in the future.) I'm glad I clicked on this one for a look. Best Wishes, Gary
