For the Love of all Humanity - Poetry

Planting Lifes Nature Tree

Life's Pursuits

Breathing life into this vessel

This ship of a spiritual

yet metaphysical being Settled

Oxygen filled trees

branched out to the top of the sky

Pink Dandelions &

Turquoise butterfly's Dance and Prance

just ending those frozen

Wintery days that once moved idly by


Weeping willows

soft winds

thin air

Ear drums ring of the hummingbirds

cheer

As spring showers sprinkle

for good fortunes grow near


The earnest Ants build mansions

with the tiniest branches as tools

The Sly Fox runs out of his dug out

to take chase far from home to soon

The Polar Bears slumber

is no longer

That great ogre has surely grown

He's been awakened

by the Lion Kings Raging Roar

Crowned once again on his new thrown




None of these creatures are

trapped in a cage

none of them were meant to be tamed

Not by anyone or anything

Humanity

Humanity

Oh I'm sorry to say Humanity


Badgers run wild flying swiftly as Tomcats

Run to catch their next snack

Hound Dogs play double dutch with the Fox

that just lost storage of winter Fat

While Sea-lions play water polo with sea horses

As the camera man takes pictures of them

Fisherman with their Poles, nets and killer boats

scrape at the oceans bottom to take whats left

Humanity

Humanity

Oh Dear humanity


Your floating on cloud nine again

above birds feeling timeless

the worlds a pearl at high altitudes

The earthly sky is our friend but oh so mindless

like the stars sun and Moons longitude

Spring has Entered the center stage Water runs everywhere

ever flowing rivers & Waves

All inner visions of a True outward view of our inward Humanity

Onward to the next chapter the very last Page

Wow my friend, I haven't seen this side of you before. Very nice indeed, a very nice change of pace and I am appropriately impressed.

Thank you @Writer20, I just had to let it out, the nature side of me actually goes way back to when I were little and watched so many documentary specials about nature.

I crave that which I have yet to experience, which is living completely in the wild. Someday soon maybe, if god permits it to be, I will return home where the owls hoot, and the rabbits run free.

It just came to me @Billybuc, I don't no where from, but I had to release it. I been writing poetry for years, but mostly technical poems, and for some odd reason nature just popped into my mind earlier today.

My others on nature are too much I think for folks to interpret, but its all good though. Thanks for reading, and I'm glad you enjoyed it.

@Gypsy Rose Lee, Yes indeed a tribute to the true nature many of us lack, and what we are missing indeed, to be in tuned with it is to be truly free. I'm happy you liked it.

Fantastically written poetry, I was captivated by the words and more intricate meanings behind them. Why is humanity so destructive compared to all other animals on Earth one might ask? I gave this a vote up, beautiful, and awesome.

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City Author

@dmop, intriguing questions my dear friend, humanity is frail at times, but not always though, we are also cold hearted too, mostly but there's always a ray of hope.

Thanks man for the votes, and don't get me wrong though I love humanity so much, and haven't yet given up on our people.

If there is a god whom regulates and creates all, it must be in his grand scheme for us to be so ignorant as we've once had been in the past, not all of us but a great deal many, but we have surely learned a grave lesson over time, and it appears we are beginning to make huge changes today, but its taking time for sure, awesome comment by you.

@ iamaudraleigh, I so glad you enjoyed this poem it is my inner nature that's come out a bit here, I'm still saddened by all the pain the worlds been through, and so I express it at times using poetic words, in hope that others can grow a closer appreciation for what most of us are missing, which is our true nature, and the unity between it all.

I truly appreciate you taking the time to leave a in depth comment and for reading, as well as sharing with me Audra, see you soon in your hubs.

@tammyswallow, Thanks you Tammy. If it weren't for my mom many years back, placing me in front of the television to watch nature programs ever since I was a baby through out my adolescence, I would of been totally disconnected from the natural world like many people are today.

So I still dream of living in tuned with it all someday, this is why I work so hard today, and for everyone besides myself, she also taught me to share in a huge way.
