Our Mother, Our Home

Whales and dolphins

snow leopards

and dinosaurs.

We want to keep

them around

as long as possible.

Unavoidable

tragedies not

withstanding

we don’t have to

deliberately disregard

their safety for

our comfort.

We are the caretakers

as is a higher being

for us.

We perish, they

perish.

We’re lucky to have

such a beautiful

home to rent

from the universe.

The least we can

do is keep it up.

Yet, still in all

we can’t (yet!)

control mother

Nature’s mighty force

for our sole benefit

and those others that

reside on this blue

planet with us.
