Our words this week for my weekly poetry challenge, #SynonymsOnly, were “shift & kind.” I used “change” for shift, and the phrase, “hearts in the right place” for kind.
Save our mother
I feel the tremors of mother earth beneath my feet. In my heart, I know she is on the brink of a huge shift – the likes we’ve never seen before. Many issues will come into play for us and our many worldly neighbors: politics, economic disasters, dramatic weather fluxes and changes, the migration of peoples to other lands, and even our own shifts in perception of the truth. These are the thoughts tearing my heart apart today.
I want to speak out – to somehow make my voice heard above the constant grind of the news cycle. How can I help?
Hearts in the right place—
demand a public forum
cry for songs of change
Some secrets should be made public, known, shown, and spoken. Still, our cries for the truth go unheeded. When will we work together in concert to save our earthly mother?
