Choosing Tomorrow

Today the colors lit up the sky at dusk
stubborn trees refusing to give up the day
the sun from the ground in yellow hues
a proclamation to fight a bit longer.

I wonder who noticed among the darkness impending
that the Earth was fighting for its name “Life”
and for its soul “Light”, for its breath “Water”.

I walked away like the others
beacons falling at our feet.
Will there be another Spring?
Will there be another choice?

    This is beautifully written and poignant… as Cheif Seattle said when the government wanted to buy Native American land, “The Earth does not belong to us, we belong to the Earth.”

    The soul of the earth is not always heard
    unless one knows how to listen
    I love what you did here Kate
    As always Sheldon
