Our Mother Earth

This mother Earth,
Who gives us life;
This mother Earth,
Heart filled with strife,

We love her not,
Though love we should;
Her death we plot,
For life's "own good";

She gave us air, and food, and home,
That's not enough we humans scream;
With greedy lust our mouths do foam,
With evil hopes our eyes do gleam;

Her air we fill,
With smoke and death;
Ourselves we kill,
For lack of breath;

The sea once clean,
Now choked with waste;
To drink we fear,
Will death make haste;

The soil once pure,
And full of life;
Now barren sand,
Of farmer's strife;

No longer she,
Can stand our "love";
Now we must flee,
Like scattered dove;

She gave us all,
Unto the end;
Now we appalled,
Our lives defend

This poem is amazing, it really touches me. I can relate to this because of nature and because God really is the true creator of this beautiful world that we call home. I spend many hours writing poetry while sitting on the beach and listening to the "majestic roar" of the waves. It really inspires me and I wish I could write poetry as beautiful as this lovely piece by Ron Tranmer.

Mother Nature
by Ron Tranmer ©


Have you ever spent the hours
just gazing at the stars,
contemplating all the wonders
in this universe of ours?

The beauty of each flower.
Their fragrances we smell.
The magnificence of color,
and each intricate detail.

Have you looked upon the ocean
watching waves crash to the shore,
and felt the awesome power
of it's great majestic roar?

The many colors of a rainbow
as it arc's across the sky,
almost takes my breath away.
Is it any wonder why?

Have you sat with one you love
to watch the falling sun,
spraying rays of reddish haze
to show the day is done.

All the beauty that surrounds us
in this world whereon we trod,
are not from "Mother" nature,
but from our "Father"......God
