Saving Grace


IMG_5611

 

Amazing Grace,

how sweet the face

 

IMG_5610

 

In innocent trust

does what it must

 

IMG_5607

 

To survive and thrive…

 

 

to stay alive.

 

IMG_5842

 

Can we then

just pretend

 

IMG_5813

 

We own no blame,

deny the shame

 

IMG_5773

of apathetic neglect

and gross disrespect

 

IMG_5775IMG_5776

for those whose future

we juggle in our hands

 

IMG_5800IMG_5772

 

as we ravage the lands,

and pollute the seas

 

IMG_5445IMG_5804

 

in our quest for power,

secure in ivory towers

 

IMG_5613IMG_5441

 

raised atop the bones

of the guileless ones

who came before.

Look into the face

of moon hanging in space,

for how could we replace

such magnificence?

 

IMG_5467

 

Nature knows its place,

gaze into its face

and make a solmn vow

 

IMG_5760

 

To be its Saving Grace.

Please.

    1. Thank you so much. I am happy my message was understood. We only have so much time, but most humans don’t really understand we are fighting for our own survival in the end. Nature will find its way when all is said and done.

  1. Love, love, love Cheryl! The photo of the squirrel with nut is adorable and the one of the moon is haunting.

    If only all humans would take part in saving the planet and its creatures. There is so much beauty in the world that needs to be taken care of rather than destroyed.

    1. It takes each person to care and do something. Sadly, too many people only jnow how to follow a “cause” or join a group. I don’t do it all right but I try as much as possible. And I sure do appreciate the gifts of the Earth.

  2. It’s always sad to see the senseless disregard for the environment, whether on a large scale or someone just tossing garbage on the ground when they were probably 20′ from a trash can. Spending a little time watching these creatures, as they try to survive with us as neighbors, really makes me appreciate the beauty of your photos even more.
