Haiku for a planet blue

Haiku for a planet blue

A Poem by Anthony (aka Mr.e)

Planetary problem


Earth looked to the sun.

She rose with a big question,

“you feeling alright?”


“No, the humans hurt.”

The sun’s face displayed concern,

“I know they do care.”


Earth swallowed a nuke,

“Now do you see how I feel?”

“(belch)…it sickens me.”


The sun was rising…

“Communication is key.”

But earth was speechless.


The earth scratched his head…

“I do not possess a voice,

they will never hear.”


The sun smiled on earth;

“I suggest you find your voice.”

“The humans need you.”


Sun slipped behind…

Earth thought about his problem…

Moon was drifting by…


“Hey moon, what’s up bro?”

“(yawn) good morning earth!”

Moon was full of sun.


“Do you know human?”

earth spoke with a concerned voice.

“yes, they have rockets!”


“(belch) I know that much,

but how do you talk to them?”

“I don’t think you can…”

Moon slipped beyond the corner of earth’s eye, as earth gagged on another oil slick…Uh oh-


“This smog is killing me...people...animals...plants...life.”

The dominant figure of speech here is personification, in a narrative dialogue about humanity plight.
