Mother Earth - Poem by yoonoos peerbocus

Humble Mother Earth in her wisdom
never brags of her depths where all
at last return to meet
their ancestors underground,

pregnant with life more varied
than the sky holds.She akin
to the night sky that does not
take credit for the moon

but continues to hold her, she
too quiet as creation itself,
her curtain drawn, manifests
her perfect reflection

in the fruit-garlanded orchards
and blossom wreathed briars, shapes
of dust breathing until it gets dark
for these few short days.

Topic(s) of this poem: blank, blank verse

    Humble Mother Earth in her wisdom
    never brags of her depths where all
    at last return to meet
    their ancestors underground,

    Sir, these opening verses themselves speak volumes. And the poem proceeds and ends in a grand vision. Indeed a solid poem from every angle. You are a seasoned poet and that is very much evident in this poem too. 10+

    Beautiful descriptive poem of our life sustaining earth, the brevity of human life and to be aware of our small part in this universal consciousness (Report)Reply

    The poem besides its reflecting the beauty by poet's thought it also make me realise that...why we call it Mother earth...because the selfless character and the loving sense the earth has, just like a mother. Thanks Yoonoos! (Report)Reply

    Beautifully enchanting, a true ode to our greatest mother, as we continue uncertainly into the 21 century mankind has and continues to whip her. It is important that even the most cynical and spiritually apathetic read a work like this. Thank you Yoonoos! top marks! (Report)Reply

    Needs editing at " She akin" should read She is akin
    Beyond the grammar corrections needed
    I always appreciate such deep introspective heart felt thought.
    I always end up wondering the astrological sign each and every poet was born under. Pondering what sort of thought flows out of each birth sign

    Nice poem but I'm a Christian and believe what the Bible says Colossians 1: 16 " for thru Him God (Jesus Christ) created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth" and John 1: 3 " God created everything through Him, and nothing was created except through Him"
    I am not criticizing. your poetry and will chalk it it up to poetic license. I love many of your poems and have a few in my collection. Please take my comments in love
