Our Splendid Earth, our only home...

This poem is from "Waiting" my book of poems..... on Amazon.com as well as Amazon.ca

....I am the daughter of Gaia
.............mother earth weeps
....I am the tears of the mountains, joining the rivers;
..............together we join oceans
....I am the lover of earth’s forests, oceans and mountains
..............Raven flaps silently
....I have climbed the hard mountains, seeking freedom, hearing freedom
..............hearing liberty
....I have traveled across the world, seeking liberation,
..............talking of freedom
....I have followed our thinkers; listened to their speeches,
..............seeking a liberated world
....I long for peace on mother earth
..............and still I am waiting
....I dream of a united world, no war, no slaughter

yet hopelessly only wishing it, not tasting it
I still climb mountains, roam forests,
....enjoy birds, and talk of love,
Yet the ones around me are oblivious to the real me;
....the real me is bleeding,

You are the power behind me, next to me
You are the one who shares this world with me
You are who is making it grow and develop
You are who can make a difference or be indifferent

Have I given up the hope?
..........Not yet
Have I waited too long?
..........Undeniably
Have I lost my trust?
..........Not yet
Have I waited for us to make it right?
..........Indeed

Look around you. No matter where we live, our planet has a unique and beautiful expression Within our solar system it is the only habitable planet and absolutely stunning. In the universe we do not know where there are others or what they do, and if they have mastered the responsibility of intelligence to forge a realm where peace and harmony rule. For us things have not been that good. Yet, with all the wars and turmoil that Mother Earth has experienced thus far, it is still beautifully standing and flourishing in vegetation and flowers…Each continent has its own attractions; its own display of trees, flowers, and animals…We know many things have gone wrong with our air, our water and even our precious arable land. We are utterly vulnerable to natural disasters, as our recent experience Japan has shown. Class A earthquake proof buildings and structures could not withstand the Tsunami…Let’s examine the events around us, consider and analyze them, and see what every one of us can do; what is our responsibility to make a difference to salvage our earth and its people.
