All We’ve Been Given

All We’ve Been Given

is here, now:
Cerulean skies,
thunder clouds on high
promising rain.

A frog in the garden,
ducks on a pond.
Deer in the meadow,
larks trill their song.

The need to shield them,
is indeed strong, for
their future and ours
can bear no more wrong.

We need to protect them,
but instead, we neglect them
and harm
us all.

Hours are passing,
days turn to night,
can’t we least try
to help nature fight

what we’ve done to the earth,
what we’ve done to the skies.
Creatures abandoned
for the sake of a prize

of money and power
garnered by lies.
