NaPoWriMo Day 22 – A Plea for Earth Day

engine noises drown out bird song
and smell of exhaust covers scent
of wildflowers. Where we meant
to live our lives within a throng
and never to spend time along
the edge of a burbling stream
and enjoy the peace? Should we dream
of concrete and tar, or are we
meant for more? Don’t let nature be
just what’s seen in a sidewalk seam

~~

for dVerse, the prompt is to write a Décima.  For NaPoWriMo, the prompt is to write something for Earth Day.  This fits both bills

  1. Let’s hope that a sidewalk seam isn’t what we’ll be left with…I do wonder sometimes. Thanks for your thoughtful tribute to our Mother Earth, Bryan. May she thrive and flourish in pristine beauty for eons to come.
