Three Poems About Living On This Planet

by | Sep 19, 2020 | Planet A, Poetry Corner | 0 comments

ANOTHER SUMMER COMES AND WILL GO

 

Sixty-three summers have shone their light

How many more their fleeting memory will hold,

How many more warm summer breezes will I feel on a sunken cheek,

My little grandson a new and unaffected wondrous being,

His summers still before him.  Born at summers end

Giggling and cooing as he meets his second summer

dancing on the breeze

Will fortune shine that I might see

some twenty-one summers more or not

But for the moment my joy doeth come

on a summer breeze laughing, caressing,

My sunken cheeks and thorny brow.

 

 

LET THE NEW GREEN BE THE NEW GOLD – LET THE
PLANET TEACH US

 

Let Green be the new Gold

With fresh new ways of seeing,

Life on a changing planet.

Where she teaches us how not we her.

Let’s slow down and take a breath,

So all who travel can breathe.

 

 

GREEN IS THE NEW GOLD

 

Green is the new gold,

Whose perfume captures our senses

And awakens us to new way of smelling the roses,

To new ways of opening our minds and hearts,

To the small wonders this planet holds.

The sweet smell of the new gold

is like taking a breath of fresh clean air

Like tasting clean pure water,

Like watching fertile soil on a baren landscape

Grow crops of corn higher than your head.

Like being sure the seed you bought,

Will reproduce itself over and over.
