Our Supreme Mother.
Knows nothing of the word: hesitate.
In the eye of a vicious and relentless storm.
Not one of Her making or choosing.
resolute and alone.
Struggling to survive, to flourish.
As forces beyond Her control,
Chip away at the majesty of our fading blue planet.
She has not failed us.
She will not give up without a fight.
And in return and in reply:
Can we afford to hesitate, any longer?
This is a poem I wrote a couple of years ago over at My Poetic Path. I think these words ring truer (and louder so to speak) with each passing year.
The Earth Day site is a great place to read about many ways we can help the Earth, every day. Earth Day, April 22nd is just a good reminder to make it a priority.
Simple, positive initiatives that add up to big changes; one person at a time.
And aren't those kinds of "revolutions" the best and most lasting of all?
Can we afford to hesitate?
