The Earth Poems

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.
