The Earth Poems

June 13, 2011
The Grassland

A lion grazes,
The small, yellow children weep—
Blue world without end.


The Ocean

Beautiful in blue,
Lapped in exasperation,
The waves kiss the sky.


The Jungle

Laughing in the trees,
Baby gorilla dances.
Will he find his rage?


The Tundra

Cold and desolate
Green grass peaks out from the frost
There is no earth here

The Earth

Beneath the soil,
The scorched earth cries out in vain.
The sorry world ends.

i thought the poems were creative.  i could really see a story created.  also, i totally see how you were inspired by "Ishmael".  i could really see it in the last poem.
