Earth Poem

Picture by ©️Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris

Radiant suns rays shimmer
on a future dismal and bleak
Daffodils push through
ground unfrozen by the warmth

Greenery abounds outdoors
inside nothing ever grows
Morning Glory vines
send feeler sprouts out to scout

A family of Goldfinches
stop to eat from a bird-feeder
filled to the brim with fresh seed
Blessed are the birds of wild

Captured avians left alone
in cages devoid of light
Deprived of food, water and care
are not so blessed as their kin

The Earth turns each face
to the mighty orb in the sky
Every day gaining sustenance
inside she withers and dies

Through the dense cover of clouds
circling in her unending journey
A lone sunbeam breaks through
nourishing her fading core
