Bounty

entry picture

 

Caressing winds towards the end of day

Causing clouds to swirl, blue to fade away;

Swirls of rainbows split then recongregate

Like sheep tumbling through an open gate.

Some thoughtless man lacked the will to close;

Whole green earth suffers like the fading rose

Women's care is gracefully, consistently, sustained, 

To create beauty, even amongst the barrenest of stains

Man's linear thinking inflicts his bloody-mindedness,  

Knows the cost of everything, the value of nothing,

Has wreaked havoc on nature's delicate ecology

This rape of mother earth is an abomination and an evil.

Mankind must begin to see he is a steward not owner

And God - the  great creator and bountiful composer.

Thanks go to Amsterdam Jon for his technical expertise in bringing this poem out of a modest hibernation. John
