So, some might have noticed that I did not keep to my challenge, starting on the first day! Smh! I know, I’m working on it! But, it does help to have a little pressure/friendly reminder (ahem… not pointing anyone out or anything… READERS… lol)!
In any regard, I have to make up for yesterday’s blunder by posting four poems today! Look at me! Getting all poetry buck wild, with my bad self! Haha!
Anyway, without much ado, here is a poem inspired by yesterday’s Day 22 prompt on the NaPoWriMo website.
Day 22 Prompt:
“Today is Earth Day. The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970 and is now celebrated internationally. In honor of the occasion, I challenge you to write a poem in keeping with Earth Day — it could be a reflection on what’s growing in your garden, a modern pastoral, or a Marianne-Moore-style poem about an animal. Anything to do with the natural world is fair game. Happy writing!”
Mother Earth’s Seas
Cool, clear bright days
Powered by beautiful waves
And sandy stays
What a wonderful world
It truly is
Smiles invented from remote beaches
Love cultured by the blackened blue of the starriest nights
Peace infused through the aesthetic healing of the mountainside
Universal joy and happiness embedded in the woody footsteps of forest delight
Come hang in the trees
Blow in the breeze
Laugh & smile
Energized by nature’s glee
Sailing, infinitely and endlessly
On the wavelength of Mother Earth’s seas
