A Beautiful Enchantment

A poem for the 50th anniversary of “Earth day”

Blue lagoon and cliffs
Natural features of Earth – Le Souffleur, Mauritius
Earth, I love you, for my eternal seed roots into you 
Earth, you revolve, while the sea dissolves into you 
Earth, you evolve, while everything else dies within you 

Your belly is a jar that nurture everything that's alive
Your belly is a petri-dish where we all dive 
Your belly is a pathway, where we all drive

This little planet, pale blue dot, so fertile and damp
This little planet, rich with variances of life and lands 
This little planet, so colorful, so full with things that ramp

And your big arms, hug us, mortal as we are
And your big arms, cradle us, bad as we are 
And your big arms, protect us, fragile as we are 

How lovely for us to live inside of your dream 
How lovely to exist, just to exist, swimming in your stream
How lovely to open our eyes as to find us, in your rim 

Earth I do love everything that you contain —
The sea, the sun, the sky, the lands, this wellspring, 
You see, you hear, and I know of all the love that remain
While you watch in silence, with adoration, your everything 

Earth, what a beautiful enchantment you are 
Earth, you are a treasure chest that contains all 
Earth, your secret, the chamber inside, your half dark 
Earth, I am silent, and in this silence I watch you grow whole.

Happy Earth day to all. I hope you are all safe out there. Earth is going through a harsh winter, and where the summer, as for every other seasons, will soon come around again, and perhaps, with some new types of plant shrouding here and there. Until then, stay inside, for fairies and other magical creatures don’t like humans seeing them working on upgrades, or fixing up broken things…loll


Self-Destruction (A Poem About Earth)

Earth, why won’t you talk
To us – all who dreamily walk
Within your damp vessel
Across your fumigene temple

You’ll say words that your winds
Blow, through soft tempest of skins
Those, you soulfully whisper
To all those, nature worshippers

Why you, most lovable planet –
Only one that carries all kinds of life
Remains humble and tolerant towards
These same that commit all these plight

You are going elseway as you change
And you keep yourself all sane all soft,
While above your skin, we dirty we saccage
And on your own, quietly you moult

Your soldiers shake, move, stir, wreck –
Elements at war
Your children saccage, pollute, break –
Unaware of what you are

And you calmly remain into serenity
Fluidly taking shapes into roots into flowers
Into rivers into lagoons into mountains
Into trees into grasses into rocks into soil

Anthropomorphic dreams of renewal
Constant seasonal cell regeneration
So you keep quiet you keep calm you keep to you
The secrecy of your decay till rebirth

Would you talk to our souls, if only you could…
Would you tell us to stop our own destruction
Would you… Mother earth?

On the 5th of June we celebrated ‘World Environmental Day’, while yesterday the 8th we celebrated ‘World Oceans Day’. Nature has a very special place in my heart, where in this poem, I anthropomorphise its essence and glorify its constant renewal… while we humans, destroy ourselves through the destruction of the ecosystem needed for our own survival.
