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,...

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...

I Think I Might Make This A Song

PROMPT: One Home

Souls are energy
and energy cannot be destroyed
Earth is fiery fury
and love is burning up in the void
It’s getting hard to breathe
but souls know how to intertwine
So I’ll be thriving 
as long as I have you in my life

Souls are waging war
on this arrow riding through space
And when the arrow hits its mark
energy will learn to erase 
Can we live in harmony?
can you let me die peacefully?
We could all...

PROMPT: One Home

Tout le monde,
Eating, speaking, laughing.
Different languages,
Cultures,
Clothes,
Customs.
We all share the same space
And reach for our goals
With grasping, hopeful fingers.
We fight, bleed, and die
For our countries,
And we march through the
Streets to advocate
For peace
So it never happens again.
Everywhere,
People share meals with their
Families and swap stories
With friends and strangers,
Writing,
Always writing,
Of their lives and their experiences,
Writing for the sheer thrill of it.

Unknown

PROMPT: One Home

There are so many things left unknown about our planet and ourselves 
Millions of ideas left to discover, 
and some can only pray to see them all some day, 
to know it all, all that has ever existed, only left to be dusted on a shelf. 

To know the deepest of blues 
and the highest of pinks, 
the brightest yellows 
and all of the little kinks 

There are so many things left unknown about our planet and ourselves
it's hard...

We Are Destroying Ourselves

PROMPT: One Home

We live here on earth. We fail to realize that, we aren't the best inhabitants for this planet. There is so much going on that is very negative that is our fault as people. Could you imagine the world if a different animal took over and we were like dogs to the inhabitants. There might be an alternate universe that, that exists. Would they run the world better than us or would they do worse. What sort of entertainment would...

I Watch

PROMPT: One Home

I watch
The oceans rise and fall
and dance
curling their arms up towards the
warm summer sky

joy.

I watch
The emerald green trees
slouching down with leaves and dew
reflecting beams of golden green light
across my cheeks

tired.

I watch
The sharp mountains
topped with snow
in all their rawness
untouched
unharmed.
almost unknown

simplicity.

I see
The people
Waiting
Waiting for happiness
Waiting forever
Not seeing
It's right there
It always has been

blindness.

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...

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...

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.

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?
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 ...

PSA

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 must top this Toxic Waste ...
