Speechless

Speechless

A Poem by Marie Harrison
"

A poem that I wrote for Earth Day this year.

"
SPEECHLESS
 
I shutter in awe of her divine shapely figure, 
viewing the bounty of her striking beauty.
 
I feel so small when I take in her
heavenly visions with my wandering eyes.
As I gaze at her bulging mountain peaks
and her hollow caverns,
Mother Earth's fertility
renders me speechless.
 
What a gracious lady she's been to me,
sharing her tranquil pools of clear water
and her alluring water falls
any time that I wish to use them.
 
How generous she is to
the mass fleets of towering
vessels that set sail daily, 
across her vast and mighty blue oceans,
that pound against her jagged, 
rocky coastlines.
 
We search endlessly
through out the super novas
to other limitless galaxies,
that are trillions of light years away.
Yet no other planet hardly compares,
to our nobel  and fair beauty queen,
Mother Earth.
 
Let us begin to embrace and cherish,
how lucky we are to spend
our days with such a unique gem.
 
An oddity in all reallms,
she hangs around in our Milky Way.
She's truly one of a kind,
a lady that's impossible to find
anywhere else in this universe.
 
She should leave us all
speechless...every day that we get to live
in the ample bosom of this rare beauty.

You've told a truly magnificent and beautiful story here. So true in your descriptions and the imagery you produce, that this comes across as a fairytale for the ages.
I refuse to go into the need to appreciate this beauty and how we MUST stop spreading the malignancy, because I could write for days - lol

Very well done :)

The earth as a beautiful woman, our wonderful Mother Earth. We should care and respect our mother, the one who has given us life.

I love your perspective on the natural world. Also, the vagueness and obscurity of some of your pieces really capture my interest.

this is so sweet... your language is as fresh and vibrant as the beautiful summer's day outside my window... i don't think a person can walk away from this poem without feeling thankful that they live on such an awesome planet :D (and i like how you personified 'mother earth' too -- i really thought you were talking about a lady at first lol!)

Oh there is nothing more magical or mysterious as nature... it is a teacher, a miracle worker and a cure for stress to name a few things... needless to say I admire your display of nature at its finest.
