Dice is thrown

Updated on January 21, 2020

Dice is thrown

Nature owns the forests,
Nature owns the rivers.

It create fires which it can extinguish,
It recreates that which perish.

Now it’s has thrown our dice,
leaving us with little choice.

Our game has caused this imbalance,
We owe the nature what it owns.

Let’s recess,
our maddening economics.

      A thought-provoking piece. Most certainly all that happens in Divine Providence is meant to teach us something, or let's say they happen for a reason. Lovely piece!

      The message is loud and clear...honor and protect Mother Earth. I've refused to use all plastic products and bags for years. Changes are beginning to happen but it's all so slow. Thank you for your poem.

      Hari,

      This is a nice poem.

      It is my understanding that the fires in Australia were caused from extreme drought.

      Mother nature's own doing.

      Thanks for sharing.

      I agree with your poetic offering. I read that plastic is doing more harm because it doesn't dissolve over time, plus the chemicals are harmful.

      Lorna, it's sad to see all the beautiful wildlife getting burnt like never before. It's sure is a signal to the imbalance in some other part of globe.

      A reminder Hari that nature's balance is out of sync due to willful ignorance on our part, and Mother Nature is fighting back. A powerful poem.

      Yes Eric, the world has to slow down and let the nature recover and probably give it back what is being snatched.

      I like the cadence and of course the sentiment. We here in So. Cal. need to follow your instruction much better and it seems we are making progress in the positive direction.
