Earth Day Tanka

I knew that the Oracle would have some words to give me for Earth Day.  She did not disappoint.

Rest you gentle world–
watch seasons breathe, wandering
through sun rain and night.

Follow darkness with long songs
spiriting—grow wild, complete.

I have to make a respectful disagreement with the NaPoWriMo Prompt for Day 22.  Physics (if you’re scientific) and the Spirit World (if you prefer that approach to life) have shown us that the impossible is always waiting for us just beyond our current state of awareness.

Happy Earth Day!  May we work together to find and nourish leaders who respect and honor our home and all of its inhabitants.

    A wonderful idea to consult the Oracle about Earth Day. This is a lovely hymn, and it fits your artwork.
    You are right about the physics of things and the seemingly impossible.

    Beautiful post on every level (as always!) And I too agree with you about physics and the so-called impossible. The unknown and the invisible are within our reach.

    I love this! Maybe I should have consulted the Oracle before letting myself get carried away with despond! I might just go and have a word now…
