Happy Earth Day on this 50th Celebration!

I’m sharing some earth-art and a letter poem.


Dear Earth,

Lend us your deep-rooted wisdom
So we may make wise our neglectful history
Send us your powerful patience
So we may earn it whilst becoming your caretaker
Fuel us with your judicious judgement
So we may reduce our co2 emissions and cap your rising temps
Wash your powerful water’s over our self-interest’s
So we may begin to place our planet over our pocketbook
Continue to breathe bountiful Earth
While we ready humanity’s rescue-army for your survival

Forever yours, xo
Ardent earth lover
