Earth Remains (& Poets’ Rally Appreciation)

Happy Earth Day!!!
Still celebrating National Poetry Month!

I’d like to acknowledge a few items.Β  Foremost, congratulations to all who contribute to the rallys by offering work, comments, and encouragement.

Special thanks to Jingle for hosting them.

In return, my nomination is Martin. Congrats, Sir. I always enjoy reading your work.

In addition, thank you for the awards I have received last week and over the last few months. Also, thank you, Trisha, for sharing your awards with me.

Moments gone without recollection
Forgotten birth through life’s invention
Acclimation, first signs to speech
Approximating gestures reach

Pangs, Pain,
Love, Blame
Count to ten
Find you again

Sunshine
Flowers
Evening, rain
For future grace
We all must save

Upon our planet
Live and change
Cherish each day
While earth remains

  17. thanks. πŸ™‚
    Nobody’s ever called me boss. Where I grew up, there was “The Boss” (Mr. Bruce Springsteen, one of my favorite poet/musicians) You just made my day with your comment.

  18. Happy Earth Day. I love your very bright post. πŸ™‚ I hope you have many hours of fun in the sun. πŸ™‚

  19. Hi Doraz! Going out shortly. Nice weather today. Definitely will be enjoying it πŸ™‚

  20. Thanks πŸ™‚ Always appreciated.
    Have a nice weekend, Ji

  21. well delivered Adam, a noble message on this earth day .well done .

  22. Thanks πŸ™‚ We all must do our part for the sake of the environment. I’m not perfect when it comes to that, but I’m trying.

  23. While Earth remains! That’s a scary thought that I hope everyone thinks about.

  24. I hope you’re right. I watched a video (via wordwand) of a young Canadian expressing her concern for our planet. Very moving…
