Fragrant Promises

“The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively”
Bob Marley

Oh groaning Earth
Speak!
Shout!
If your voice has been silenced?
Scream!
so that the decibels
pierce a deaf humanity.

Let healing rains dissolve
the misery
of drought and famine.
Groaning embers of death
quenched
with contrite tears.

Come sing your song
of silent protest
in the streets,
above the madness,
so that peace and love
can reign.

For always a better earth
will dawn.
It will rise
from the cinders
of destruction’s
lethal grasp!

We are Caretakers
of your riches;
your gifts are freely given.
Greed poisons
the rivers and forests
and swallows
the essence
of beauty.
It contaminates
sacred beings.

The earth
is our home,
a habitat for all
to reap in plenitude.
Living creatures
belong
to your magnificence.

Lovely fields cropped
with ripe abundance,
seas teaming in profusion,
a sky vast with life.
Earth’s breath freed from the toil
of toxic fumes.

The fire of purification
will take its last breath.
New buds will emerge,
to caress the earth
with a fragrant promise
of renewal!

The communion of hearts and souls
dancing with
restoration,
singing redemption songs,
no more hunger
no more war!
Desolation’s grip unchained!
All earthlings in unison,
agents of change,
celebrating life,
a new earth
risen from the ashes!
