Inner Reflecting…

owens-pond-dawn-041114-800webInner Reflecting on two
for one,  dark of night packed up
and gone. Morning glow yawns into sight
as lazy clouds puff up in delight. Trees reach up,
stretching high, releasing a contemplative sigh.
Perfectly framed, in perfect pose,
what will this day bring?
Whomsoever knows…

Surviving…

era-timeline In the fight for survival
does mankind hold the key?
We stand tall and proud, but what do we see?
As blow after blow brings us to our knees,
power cuts, floods, all deaf to our pleas.
By crying
foul to the weather, changed
beyond doubt, we’ve planted
our Standard,
now Nature
will out.

Natures Cleaners…

white_backed_vulture_landing_Z4F6941_800-300x126  Perched high on a crag,                                         
                                legs poised to spring,                             
hearts beating wildly                                           
                                       as we take to the wing                   
catching warm thermals,                                    
                                                   to float on thin air,                         
         taking breath quickly,                                                  
                                            hardly any to spare                
Now is the time,                                                     
                     wings spread out wide
                             a smooth operation,                           
                        to bank as we glide.                                    
Flowing the motion,                     
as fluidity is key,                                      
we land, we devour,  for Vultures we be…

Endangered Species

Rüppell’s Vulture or Rüppell’s Griffon Vulture (Gyps rueppellii) is a large vulture that occurs throughout the Sahel region of central Africa. The current population of 30,000 is decreasing due to loss of habitat and other factors. Rüppell’s Vulture is named in honour of Eduard Rüppell, a 19th-century German explorer, collector, and zoologist. Rüppell’s Vulture is considered to be the highest-flying bird, with confirmed evidence of a flight at an altitude of 11,300 m (37,000 ft) above sea level.

Balancing Act Too…

 

 

Mother NatureNature can be cruel, hardly ever kind,
should we claim unawareness
we’d surely be blind
to the varied facets
of Natures law
as wild animals
on the Earth
live and die
by claw…
Mankind has
unwound
the delicate
balance
she
keeps,
breaking
linked cycles,
making sure she
weeps,
as he brings us to the edge
of Earths ruin in his name.
Dare we look Nature
in the face
and try apportion blame?

Re-posted for Earth Day….

Comfort Me?

GaiaGaia As
bloody killing clubs rise
ending baby seals lives,
my heart doth decry
comfort me?
As
ships trawl for whales
my understanding fails
blood lust prevails
comfort me?
As
concrete coldly smothers
Mother Earth it covers
death throe shudders
comfort me?
As
Mankind was first born
from Adams rib torn
woe the day dawn
comfort me?
Can
you feel my despair?
I beg you, 
have a care
I cry daily,  beware
please,
comfort me…
