Planet Earth A Short Poem

Planet Earth

 

This beautiful blue and green planet as observed through the darkness of space

Spinning on its axis with a beautiful grace

How blessed with fortune are we as a race

To live on this Orb, such a wonderful place?

Planet Earth.

Planet Earth in all its raw natural beauty.

Although sometimes it may not seem it, the planet which we call home truly is a remarkable place. From the tiniest ant to the largest whale there are so many wonders to behold. To think of how this perfect storm came together at the dawn of our planet indeed could blow someone’s mind. How fortunate we are that our rotating globe is just the perfect distance from our own source of central heating that is the Sun. Just a few miles in either direction and life as we know it would not exist.

It therefore mystifies me just how we as humans can treat our world and our fellow man so badly. Wars over religion, political differences, terrorism, race and hate crimes to name but a few. Thats not to mention hunting and killing defenceless animals simply for sport or as a trophy. Now whatever your personal stance on pollution there is certainly no denying that things here are changing and not always for the better. It seems to be man’s nature to destroy even the most beautiful of things.

Is it too late to change? I personally don’t think so, but Earth’s clock is ticking and if that clock should one day stop…well, who knows?
