A Mind That Is Alive - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It has been hindered by you.
Splintered.
And the spirits are here to mend.
Everything about it will be tossed on its end.
Until its corrected.
And you can bet it will be done!
Under the power of the Moon, Stars and Sun
You are going to witness it!
This upheavel that takes a shift.
To restore before your eyes with surprise.
Earth, indeed, is a mind that is alive!
And it knows...
It has been taken too much for granted.
And it has allowed us to sit too long,
In self destruction!
Disrupting its peacefulness,
It wishes and can give!

    I think that we are taking poetry to step two, the looking beyond our present state
    All can be such healing

    Thank you for expressing an idea of a conscious entity which tolerates us. If it writes poetry I will be fulfilled.... Rgds, Ivan (Report)Reply
