Treasure Island

Hudson Black (Hudson D. Black Poet on FACEBOOK)


Earth


There was a time
Of which we cannot conceive
When plastic did not exist
When petroleum laid resting

There was a time
When oceans were a true blue
Colors we will never see covered a world
Without a square inch of concrete

And I wonder was it ever even possible
For us to thrive without destroying
Or were we destined to become parasites
That feed

Consuming this thing of beauty
A perfectly balanced ecosystem of grace
This rock
That we so arrogantly named
“Earth”

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
