Earth

Great Blue

Furrows grow
along the hillside
in layers horizontal.
They will hold
the rain, the soil.

Our garden is set to feed
the family and friends that gather.

The she-wolf only takes
what she requires for her and her cubs.
Never have rabbits… nor eagles
biggie-sized their meals.

Squirrels distain cling-wrap.

While legions strive
pursue
debate
the virtues and evils
surrounding oil transport
over and against
lithium strip-mining,
we ride out bikes out
into the countryside to enjoy
the rejuvenation that comes
from rubbing shoulders with the dwindling….

For Earth Day and NaPoWriMo 2017.
