Our Earth

Our Earth

earth2

Earth–

arable land
of which Adam
came;

from which we plant,
fish,
game.

The same land
of which is said:

“He has established the earth
on its foundations;
It will not be moved
from its place

forever and ever.”

Even though, on it,
millions have bled

fighting for ‘rights’
when the wrong minds
led.

Flat and Round

An oblate spheroid—

“squashed at its poles”
“swollen at the equator.”

This twisting on its axis
causes us
no fear

of dipping into vastness
in a sudden disappear.

Promised made
from Our Creator’s
symbolic lips:

“From now on,
the earth will never cease to have
seed-sowing and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
and day and night.””

These wondrous words
foretelling
up-and-coming
beholds

of breath-snatching
sunrises
and soul-disarming
solar eclipses.

Imagine forever.
Not too young,
yet never old.

Keep living to see

Earth’s Future
Unfold.
