EARTH

"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.” Rachel Carson
Some thoughts of Earth as just routine, exist; for it's the only way we know to live. The Sun comes up each day to coexist with Earth that's tethered by its rule to give. The air we breathe- like magic fills our need for balanced oxygen our lungs require. The gifts from land and sea are here to feed; fulfill the hunger of innate desire. Besides sustaining us, our Earth provides grand scenery that takes our breath away. Real land and seascapes offer stunning slides of artistry- alive in full display. And, with all this, the gift to procreate; the flowers, trees- Earth's species, one and all. A miracle for sure, that steers the fate to multiply- extinction to forestall. Earth seasons come and go without a flaw providing shifts for rebirth after death; all living things will die by nature's law- to sleep in Winter- rise with Springtime breath. Must contemplate this beauty of our Earth that grants the strength to recognize its worth.
