Happy Earth Day

Oh! Happy Earth Day!
What does that really mean now?
Is the Earth smiling?

Aloe Vera, a healing plant
*

I think it must hurt (especially now) to be the Earth ... to have given so much since time began and to selflessly continue giving all of yourself in the face of increasing abuse from those to whom you have graciously given a free and fully furnished home. What has the Earth asked from us in return? Nothing but respect and greater consciousness of the way we 'walk'. She needs nothing else, because She has everything.

Choosing today as the date for the Greenlight Network concert, Nature of Sound was quite coincidental ... but, given our focus, very fitting.

Together, may our little drops inspire an ocean of Greater Consciousness.

Aloe vera heals us, I wonder what will heal the earth? How do we heal our human relationships when we have done so much damage to each other?

Those questions were spurred from reading your entry.

I never got to thank you for passing along the information regarding the harmed bird. I am sorry the bird passed. Glad you were there to care for it in its final days.

Good questions. Would be interesting for us all to know the answers and act on them.

The earth is suffering right now, for sure... the titles we give tot hings sometimes... but it's a start, I guess.
BTW, Elspeth- dearest hubby is in Port of Spain as we speak! He is loving it!

Very thought-provoking poem. I don't see much to make it smile. Except, perhaps, work some do to show respect.
