Mankind

What is the measure of our lives
Not caring of our type or kind
Keeping ourselves only in mind.
Selfish thoughts are all that us drives
We ignore and avert our eyes
Not a care for those who struggle
Ignore the poor in their huddle
Strip nature of all her riches
Waste water leaving dry ditches.
Mankind leaves nothing but muddle.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 13 (TRUE) This week, it’s the C rhyme line.

This is part of Ronovanwrite’s Décima poetry challenge which is also linked to his Weekly Haiku Challenge.

We are diminished as a whole
Like ever decreasing circles
Drifting out to Gaia’s center
Gentle ripples in times echo
Resounding loudly as they go
We’ve nearly lost fight it’s true
Blackening the earth and skies too
Can we escape the sands of time
Or will the bells ring out deaths chimes.
Is there anything we can do.

All hope will dwindle

Nature has no patience left

Lost in time Ripple.

Rediscovering

Nature is my sole intent

All life here in thought

Intent&Thought

Thursday photo prompt: Painted #writephoto

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a rather oriental red bridge over a  pool covered with waterlilies and surrounded by trees.

This week’s prompt ~ Painted

In silence they stand and drink in the view

The sound of the waterfall, music to their ears

The lilly flowers a sight bright and new

They had seen nothing like this for years.

The beauty of nature, it sights and it’s smells

Had almost been forgotten lost for years.

A lifetime they’d been sheltering in their cells.

Hiding from death, while nature simply thrived

Without interference the planet found new life

The humans dwindled but some survived

The planet hoped they had their lessen learned.

Don’t take nature for granted her gifts are to be earned

Thursday photo prompt: Dance #writephoto

This week’s prompt ~ Dance

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a pale sun piercing the mists above a green path through a golden field, leading into the centre of a circle of stones.

Join the dance of ages,

Of soothsayers and sages.

As history writes the pages

The stones meet the dawn with praises.

As the sun burns through the mist

Gia touches each stone to give grist

To life’s turns and twist

She warms each one sun kissed.

As night begins to fall

The stones begin to dance and call

This the magic and nature of them all

By day they stand by night they join the ball.

********

This, ( I hope) joyous ode to Gia raises my soul. Part of Sue Vincent’s Thursday Photo Challenge.

Slender tips of green

Push against the odds with might

Win however slight.

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY! It’s the first of the month and you know what that means! Poets, choose your own syllabic poetry form, theme, words, images, etc. It’s up to you! Are you looking for inspiration for your syllabic poetry?

The earth keeps turning
