Poem Commentary

She Cries In Pain


Mother
Earth Is
Screaming.
Is anybody listening?

Tears are flowing with stains
Flooding down the Mountains

Through Streams & Rivers, past Lakes
To Valleys below. All the way, She Aches

To Her Majestic Oceans, Her tears are forever flowing
As she cries, all attempts futile, to wash grime away, knowing

What man has thrown out, his filthy trash, She cannot wash away
Clopping Her on the head, blacken Her eyes, break limbs, every day

Bruising Her precious delicate giving body,  that man thinks is elastic
Disposing his trash, that never rots, evil thing he created, called plastic

Mother is completely unable to digest, and he knows She cannot stretch
Her womb to hold anymore. She is sick, in pain, with what man did etch

From this Evil thing he has forced down Her throat, when he thinks he's
No use for it anymore. Just toss it out, into Her rivers and streams

It all goes, till it reaches Her Mighty Oceans blue, where it flows
Round and round inside Her belly, with no end in sight, it goes

Never digest, evil plastic churning in Her womb, unclaimed
She cries to show us how, we should be ashamed

Though we are unwilling to write it in stone.
This evil mankind has shown.
Dispoils his bountiful Home.
In the here & now write!
"Rapist of Nature"

Our Mother Is Fuming.....Watch Out Everyone...lol

You have found a most impressive visual to accompany your heartwords ... and of course, the shape that you have used for your poem is refreshing and adds also, to the Mother Earth -- rounded, softened influence of she, who cradles us still... upon her magnetic rock... and your finale ~ is as stark as your poem in telling the plastic tale.. good rhymes, you used... Very Nice Work.... ok... who's in charge of the Eco Team T-Shirts... you have found incredible art.....

I enjoyed this read and the effort put into forming the words into a globe representing the earth. Excellent message against polution. I also enjoyed the pictures on your profile are these original works?

thank you dear for that sweet comment, and yes about the pictures some are original my photos some are from the net..........the question I was asking about them is that I could not decide on a picture to put with my winning poem so I thought I would leave it up to my friends to pick one for me. Pretty much all of those pictures our ones that I have taken, the beach, tree, my hubby playing in the creek, ones from cedar keys and the freaky moon light pictures are ones hubby took on top of clinch mountain TN before he died......the very last set of pictures I think there are nine or so are the ones I want my friends to pick one from for my winning poem....if you click on the picture to see a larger view it will show you a number, just give me the number and I will know which one you picked......oh and btw, if you would like to see more of my photography, I am a professional photographer of nature and wildlife, I freelance for NGM and F&S magazines, you can view them on my photo website at: http://angelsphotos.co.cc ............I hope you enjoy them, if ya do please leave me a comment on any of the pages.......thanks so much loves ya asha

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
