A gentle glance
Let’s step down for awhile
And come back to Earth.
Time to breathe deep inhale
And make our souls strong again.
A park bench is saying
See the children playing.
We pass it by in our haste!
A slower pace!
That is the future.
Truthfully we are lost in our lives. Insane.
Time to go in a huddle
The way they do before a big game.
The Earth has wilted!
Make a plan
Save the land.
Do play on your ecological fears
Plan your Green for the coming years
The fire is on the ground.
We have to step down our ladders
A few rungs at a time and embrace the world.
Let’s do the things we did as kids
Go round and round dirty our mitts
Play in the mud and sift the sand
Grab the world with our hands.
When is enough?
We are gouging the earth
Suckling her to death!
Remember the sixties call
Stop the world I want to get off
Well let’s not stop it
Just slow it down a bit!
Don’t run slow down just sit.
How will we reconcile growth with sustainenance?
Perhaps by being misers with our natural resources.
This is our penance
Resist all prejudiced forces
Grab a cloth bag use recyclable things
Let old satchels be our bling
Not being sarcastic
Just please shun plastic
It is killing the world
Its filled up the oceans now it’s in the air
The situation is enough to scare
This is the time to plan
The rest of our lives on this land
Although the panic button has been pressed
It’s now time to be on our behaviour best
Let’s deck up old things make them fine
Like New York Highline-https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Line
Let people catch up
Set out an hour to paint
To sculpt, spin a potter’s wheel
That’s our New Deal
A hobby to enable
Write a diary; or make a table.
Let us go out and hug trees
Freedom is in accepting the earth in love
Please treat her like a mother
Mankind sisters and brothers
Time to go out and walk in the rain.
Let’s get poor earth off the hook
Oh, I forgot and read a book!
