THOUGHTS ABOUT CIVILIZATION’S POLLUTERS !

THE HUMAN RACE

THOUGHTS FROM THE MANHATTAN BEACH PIER!

 

As I sit and sight dolphins

Cruising by the pier,

Cutting through Pacific waters,

So far and yet so near.

 

As I watch the surfers riding waves

Not damaging the shore,

I find the two are close of kin,

This world they do adore.

 

Yet, the dolphins must survive in those

very waters polluted by the human race.

So it’s brother hurting brother,

What an ecological disgrace.

 

When we look across the ocean

And breath the air so sweet,

Why can’t we seem to comprehend

That we’re desecrating nature’s treat?

 

The skies, the Earth, pelicans in flight,

This gift of life is so profound.

What does it take to make us aware

That we’re treading on sacred ground?

 

If we’re only a speck in the universe,

Is that too overwhelming to perceive?

This World is ours to care and share.

That’s a truth we’d better believe!

HOW DO WE STOP DESECRATING TODAY’S ENVIRONMENT? GOT ME!

THE HUMAN RACE

THOUGHTS FROM MY BENCH AT THE PIER!

 

As I sit and watch the dolphins

Cruising by the pier,

Cutting through the waters,

So far and yet so near.

 

As I watch the surfers ride the waves,

Not damaging the shore,

I find the two are close of kin,

This world they do adore.

 

Yet the dolphins must survive in

Waters polluted by the human race.

So it’s brother hurting brother,

What an ecological disgrace.

 

When we look across the waters

And breathe the air so sweet,

Why can’t we seem to comprehend

We’re desecrating nature’s treat?

We admire the skies, the Earth and seas,

The playground where we abound.

What must it take to convince us folks,

We’re treading on sacred ground?

 

A tiny speck in the universe, we are.

Is that truth so difficult  to conceive?

Earth belongs to  every living creature.

That’s a reality you’d better believe!
