One Home

PROMPT: One Home

A blue and green planet
That’s all it appears 
But is that all that it is
A chunk of rock?
Look a little closer
Look here
Look there
The diversity 
The culture
The love
The history
It is more than a rock 
Spinning around a ball of fire
It is our home
The 7 billion-plus more
Of us beings, we call humans
The animals and plants 
That we share this wonderful planet with
This place is home we have one...

we, of different races, genders, orientations. 

we, of different homes, mothers, lovers. 

we, of different hobbies, statuses, studies. 

each and every one of us lives upon our shared mother. 

the earth provides us with food, shelter, life. 

we laugh, sing, dance, cry, scream, wail. 

we listen to music like a man dying to thirst. 

we draw like our emotions are pouring out of our hands. 

we write like its the last thing we’ll ever do. 

we learn, study, make friends....

the world is big 
the world is small 
but the people on it the matter most of all
we work hard for all our lives
saving bees
and defeating hives 
the world is great
even with its problems 
it is awesome 
and with that I think it can bloosom

A Broken Whole

PROMPT: One Home

Our planet is like a mother
Patient and kind.
Waiting to clean up our messes,
Time after time.
Yet, we do nothing more than smile
When we are less than kind.
Our planet is like a mother
Loving even when love is not deserved.

Earth Everlasting

PROMPT: One Home

When the earth was young, 
We saw all of it's beauty.
Now we look stunned,
As we see it's now sullied. 
The earth gave us four gifts.
The gift of four seasons.
As our human promises shift,
Our earth's climate cannot reason.
The earth's water cleanses.
Reviving it's pure state.
All the negativity it rinses.
Earthly elements once again great.
Nature awakens where it lies.
We see the light.
Into the land, air, and sky. 
The earth breathes life.

Dreaming of Earth

PROMPT: One Home

    When dreaming of Earth you think of oceans that stretch from coast to coast. Grasslands that fill all possible land on continents. Crystal blue oceans, shining with a diamonds glare, grasslands that fill the air with a fresh aroma. Humans who have a heart of the riches gold. We give back to the people we love, not expecting anything back in return.
    Oh, what a dream it is, a dream that is so far fetched, too far away...

Like Earth

PROMPT: One Home

Like Earth, we change

Like the mountains crumbling, we fall apart
Like the howling wolves, we cry out in pain
Like the tempestuous seas, we crash against rocks
Like the raging winds, we scream our ire
Like the pattering rain, we release our sadness

Like the newborn sun, we smile in joyous renewal
Like the bright-eyed falcon, we fly in jubilance
Like the whispering grasses, we settle into comfort
Like the silent doe, we find peace
Like the babbling brooks,...

Simple Growth

PROMPT: One Home

My favorite flower is the orchid. It's rare, and its needs are specific. It cannot grow outside in the North, and it relies on me every week for its water. It's a good friend of mine because all it takes is some light and water, and it rewards me constantly with a flower. It is constant, predictable. If I do not water it, it dies, but if I treat it well it brings me joy with a magenta bloom. That...

Who is to blame?

PROMPT: One Home

 It is not the stars nor the moon to blame
 For how the earth is today
 Not the animals or plants
 The flowers or the trees
 So who is to blame?
 It's us

 We are to blame for the smog in cities 
 The plastic in  the ocean, 
 The downfall of animals,
 The tempeture rising,
 The scarceness of resources,
 The fighting
 We are to blame for our own destruction


 So the next time you ask yourself,

One Of Many Kinds

PROMPT: One Home

Earth is a special place, happy, joyful, crazy and sad.
There are people who are kind, and those who are mad.
And even though there are places with people who are glad,
All I need is a brother, a mother, and a dad.

Every country is different, divergent and unique.
Filled with rocks, fields, plains, hills, flowers, and sticks.
Some places hold surprises, and others hold tricks.
With different cultures and foods, to eat and to lick. 

But the best...

America

PROMPT: One Home


            America
Controversial, prideful, and hopeful
            America
Born of old, shaped by new
            America
Bound by law, released of futility
            America
Land of the free, caged by the past
            America
Mixed culture, but same standards
            America
Land of dreams, reality’s harsh revelator
            America
True to the dreamer, lost to the actualist
            America
A dream floating away from reality, grasped by few, lived by many,
            America.

Roof on Top

PROMPT: One Home

We may live in different countries, but we still breath the same air.
We may experience different things, but we still live in the same time.
We may meet different people and hear different stories, but at the end of the day we still fall asleep under the same night sky.

The greenary you see might be different from the grass I know. 
The salty air that I taste might be different form the air you know.
You might be...

is it the moon?

PROMPT: One Home

The moon isn't to blame
for the cruel mistakes we made
Won't cover up our bruises
the stars won't even dare
Our hearts are not left behind
the night is alone too

Is it us or is it cold outside
cold in those gray cities
Is it the moon who stole the colors
or is it us who consume
Why did they leave me a lonely city
with eyes clashing with mine
The sun stole your eyes
those shiny lives...

What Can People Do?

PROMPT: One Home

What can people do?
What can people do?
What can people do? 
What can people do?

Used to the new world,
lost sight of the old.
Stuck on their ways,
their adventures growing mould.

Immense business industries
raising the children of the world.
Hoping for the best, 
but I still lay curled.

What can people do?
What can people do?
What can people do?

that song of humanity

PROMPT: One Home

It's gotten quieter
Harder to hear
Over the years

It used to be strong
And healthy
Buzzing with a
Vibrant beat

As the young earth
Rejoiced
In the innocence 
And loveliness
That it
Sang of

Anyone with ears 
Could hear
That sheer
Love
Joy
Happiness
That was released

As they evolved
As they learned
Destroyed
The world around them
The song has gotten softer

The song of newborn love
Love of that home
They shared
That home that
They once cherished ...

when humanity was young

PROMPT: One Home

when humanity was young,
we looked around us
at the earth
and saw beauty.

the ocean hummed a hopeful tune
and we heard it and sang along.
the wind whispered secrets into our ears
and we treasured them in our hearts.

we found our souls
in the ancient dances of the trees
and in the mud that caked our feet.

when humanity was young,
our blood ran with the rivers:
pure, and joyful and free
and we painted the earth ...

Tide down, he’s all tied up,
bound by noxious waste.
Another victim claimed,
an exhibit of our harm.
Ruins of mankind:
digested by our being.

Bare water, a bear in water,
swimming for her life.
then,
only Silence.
...and the breaking of waves.
Wildlife of the Arctic:
melting into graves.

Buy this, made by them!
tainted morals of corporations.
All life
suffocated
by a thickening smog.
A constant flow of emissions-
poisoning every breath.

We mean nothing to this world.

We are the creation that the world has never seen before.
The world will continue and eventually even Time will forget us.

Despair Of A Mother

Gaia, the mother earth goddess cried an ocean as she stared down at her beloved child. She had been in a fit of despair for many moons now, so many she had lost count.

Her finest creation. Her pride and joy. The invention that the heavens had sung lavish praises for. Even Chaos, her most bitter enemy, had agreed it was a feat.
Now, they had betrayed her.
They had ripped her trust and love from her body. Tearing her...
