Earth’s call to her inhabitants
Startled some and charmed others
‘Though some looked on with callousness
As they always try to leave their mark

Nature mingled amongst the twisted limbs
In awe as to what was on offer
They filtered out their destruction
Progress and profit first in mind

Purifying rain rinsed away the dust
Cleansing and rejuvenating where it touched
Torn away by chainsaw’s blade and digger’s bite
They soon felt Earth’s call to her inhabitants

A post for Earth Day 2018.
