NaPoWriMo Day 22 Nature’s Curse

NaPoWriMo Day 22 : Today’s pompt is  to write a poem in keeping with Earth Day!!

Coat us gently in your breath mother nature,

dress us in your warp and weft!

Love us all, your children dear,

though we all have hurt you and brought you many a tear.

We have pained you brought you low,

stabbed you yet you love us still and will not let go.

We, all issue from your womb,

treat you bad and stripped you bare and kill your blooms.

We have raped you daily, and burned your soul

exposed your softest parts to all who make your gifts their greedy goal.

Taken, taken is all we have done we never spared a thought

of how we should repay you for all that you have done.

We leave you bleeding arms outstretched we rip from you all we can get.

Never never do we spare  a thought for all the torture that on you we have wrought!

Somehow like a mother you love us and bless us and encourage us to fly.

Yet how do we repay you, we rip out your guts and leave you to die.

Mother, mother be patient yet we need all to learn from you for you know more then we shall ever forget!

Sometimes your anger you unleash on our selfish heads,

you rip up crops and smash our towns and pee on us till the rivers overflow their beds!

You pull back the oceans in the mist of mighty storms

then hurl it back at us killing many destroying all in your path

we stand open mouthed at the aftermath.

You show us how strong you are,

you could destroy us all it is within your power.

But you love us like a mother dear

and you lets us stay though we do not deserve you and that is crystal clear!

Nature’s Curse

Coat us gently in your breath mother nature, dress us in your warp and weft! Love us all your children dear, though we all have hurt you and brought you many a tear. We have pained you brought you low, pushed, stabbed you, yet you love us still and will not let go.

We, all issue from your womb, treat you bad and stripped you bare and kill your blooms. We have raped you daily, and burned your soul  exposed your softest parts to all who make your gifts their greedy goal.

Taken, taken is all we have done we never spare a thought of how we should repay you for all that you have done. We leave you bleeding arms outstretched. We rip from you all we can get. Never never do we spare  a thought for all the torture that on you we have wrought!

Somehow like a mother you love us and bless us and encourage us to fly.  Yet how do repay you, we rip out your guts and leave you to die. Mother, mother be patient yet we all need to learn from you for you know more then we shall ever forget!

Sometimes your anger you unleash on our selfish heads, you rip up crops and smash our towns and pee on us till the rivers overflow their beds! You pull back the oceans in the mist of mighty storms then hurl it back at us killing many destroying all in your path we stand open mouthed at the aftermath. You show us how strong you are you could destroy us all, it is within your power. But you love us like a mother dear and you let us stay though we do not deserve you and that is crystal clear!

Dream before Dawn

before the dawn

It is the grey just before dawn,the lightening flashes from side to side of the grey sky so forlorn. The tide turns shifting sand in shallows and the deep from seaboard to seaboard such secrets they keep.

What use is an umbrella in a thunderstorm, why wear a towel in the sea it will just get heavy and disappear as by the waves, from you it is torn. The umbrella will blow inside out and you will be left naked apart from your pout.

The wind whips up a pace it is getting really cold now and your wet hair slaps you hard around your face. You kneel cold and lonely on the edge of the sea a broken umbrella, a sodden towel and a soul that begs to be set free.
