Tribute to Earth with Haiku Poems

 

EARTH DAY serves to remind us just how incredible and unique our home planet is. From her atmosphere to her rivers, Earth has everything we need to survive.

If we want to make sure future generations can thrive in Earth’s beauty, we must actively protect natural resources, care for other species and always choose to invest in learning more. Frankly, Earth doesn’t need us, but we need Earth, so let’s show her our love (and not just on Earth Day)!

Below: My expressions through 10 Earth haiku poems and photos of places that have left me in awe

Earth, I love you so

Mountains, rivers, trees and sky

A beauty beyond

 

***

Red rock above all

A copper desert sunset

Coyotes will howl

 

***

She lives in balance

In conserving momentum,

mass and energy

 

***

Vast lands were once lush

Now troubled and in danger

World to protect

 

***

Ocean meeting sky

Warm wind gentle and freeing

Breathing sea breeze air

 

***

Pillows in the sky

Bringing water to the ground

Freely floating past

 

***

Twisted at their base

through their webs of rooted life

Trees, swaying yet firm

 

***

Mountains that humble

Even the strong and mighty

A strength to reflect

 

***

Water carved canyons

Waves crashing, thunder roaring

Forces of nature
***

A place we call home

Free for us to be living

Uniting us all

 

Truly, Tashiana

Captured by Dominick George!The way you speak without any words,

bringing life to all you pass

How you calm the mind

and bring tranquility at last

your words unspoken

your words heard

your words felt

drawing in your pure energy

while surrendering mine to you

seeing us as one, no you, no I

intertwined and existing in all that is true
