Friends of Mother Earth / The Earth is Our Friend

The earth is the garden of creation

Purposefully clothed, with lush, green vegetation.

Roots!

Firm enough to prevent critical soil erosion,

All elements working in union,

for natural joy and satisfaction.

The earth is our friend, we are the children of the earth.

The cyclic function of the earth’s ecology is no mystery,

Like the organs of the human body,

Each working in perfect harmony,

In this our environmental community,

of which the guardians and keepers

are the children of humanity.

The earth is our friend, we are the children of the earth.

The rivers, like blood streams flowing into the oceans,

Returning secretly to the fleshy bowels of earth’s creation,

Evaporating to the atmospheric breath of life,

Sun, moon and stars,

Solid, liquid and gas,

Land, sea and air,

Flesh, blood and spirit.

The earth is our friend, we are the children of the earth.

Like the lungs of man,

The trees breathe to keep the earth alive.

Yeah! The Sun, like a devoted Father

Working from sunrise until sunset

And the Moon, like a loving Mother,

Working from dusk until dawn,

Shining within the sweet embrace, of her children, the stars

The earth is our friend, we are the children of the earth.

If we protect the earth,

Then, the earth will protect us,

Clothe, feed and shelter us.

The earth is the garden of creation.

If we keep the earth alive,

Then we will stay alive,

The earth will keep us alive.

The earth is our mother and our friend!

We are the children and the friends of the earth, of the earth, of Mother Earth

      (((BOWING GRACEFULLY)))

      It is an honor Brother~King Yasus, to be able to share the awesomeness of your gift.

      As a Poet, I have the utmost respect for you & our craft. You Sir, in my book, “Have set di trend!”

      Growing-up with my Mother being my only source of poetry, finding you has been a refreshing boost to my Poetic~Eyes. You have encouraged me to delve deeper into “Dub Poetry.” In the works as we speak, I’m trying to find my, “Dub Poetry” vibe. I thank you earnestly for your continued contribution to Poetry & Life.

      Respect, Blessings & Continued Guidance to you and your home.

      “The Children of Poetree?”…I Love dat! Beautiful!🤩🤩🤩

      “Namastè & One Love”❤️💛💚
