Mother Nature - Poem by Carike Klokow

With my heavy feet i walk all over you
you just smile and let your warmth shine through
over the scorching desert into your oceans
we walk all over you,
rinsing our hands with your source of life
poluting your mind with all our man made things,
oh mother nature how sorry i am
for walking over you
how sorry i am for not claiming up to it.

How beautifull you are when twilight comes
when spring returns and grass is green
when birds sing and the air is clean
when the wind so gently sweeps the streets
and when old age comes and goes
to your soil my body i bestow
How wonderfull your gracious heart for letting me use you so
thank you for looking after us as well as u do
Mother nature i will always care for you

    Carike, you made me cry with this one. Lynda is so right that this is lovely and so vividly painted instead of just written. I could see everything you describe here, and it is such a shame that we have to be so disrespectful to a great lady that feeds us and gives us water to drink and air to breathe, so that we may survive. Thanx for sharing this Carike, it is so lovely to read. Barbara (Report)Reply
