Living Landscape

Man-made blemishes on earths face  

lost appreciation for open space  

tainted waters, a polluted trace 

leading to a polluting race 

selfish motive it's not our place 

to take what's living and deface 

breathing landscape a giving tree 

ungrateful tenants who cannot see 

deserve a planetary decree  

that grants them sight of what will be 

if ignorance overpowers the subtle plea 

a blurred future and clouded judgement 

what is taken for granted no longer abundant 

inspired initiative the only hope 

to heal and fix what's already broke 

or be wiped from earth, one clean stroke
