How Nature Heals

Here beneath the open sky
all possibilities flow by.
Channels cut through Earth by time
contain the base and the sublime.

Heaven and Hell equally mixed
within a world man thinks he’s fixed,
but the urgency of mankind’s rule
often brands him as a fool.

Serial acts to gain control
have ripped our planet from Pole to Pole.
Disasters far beyond our range
to remedy with tardy change––

threaten with an urgency
that nature in resurgency
thrusts in our faces. Fire storms
plague us as our planet warms.

Hurricanes and flooding rains
show us how nature disdains
our engineering of global drought,
water we can’t do without

and yet, when sent with too much zeal,
destroys what it was meant to heal.
Could it be that nature’s fuss
is meant to do away with us?


The prompt words are: rule open sky beneath within hell heaven flow channel urgency time serial for The Sunday Whirl Wordle 582

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Oh that makes me feel guilty, some of that damage looks a lot like my “was” SPA. Sending photo under separate email. But I have dug a very deep hole with my tractor to hide my destruction and because it will be well covered, nature will never dig it up~!

    Judy, I wish you had even more of a worldwide readership. Or that your words became a required course in junior high, and spawned more awareness or even reaction? Or perhaps at times they already do? All I can do is send them along to the grandkids.

    Could it be time to hit the pause button? Reassess. Perhaps try to figure out what we have been doing wrong. Before it really is too late. Or do we just live for this disaster and rebuilding game ? Good one Judy.

        As long as they make it easy to recycle “single use plastics” I think it is a great idea. That and get the manufacturing industries on board with the idea. Single use plastic for products is a big part of the problem. If it cannot be recycled don’t use it to deliver the product. Switching over at first might take some time. Still it is worth it if it reduces the amount of plastic in the envirorment.

          When I was in Bali in the 90’s the problem was flip flops that would wash down the rivers to the sea. The fishermen used them to hold up their fishing nets.. You would see miles of flipflops stretching out to sea!
