Desert

Thanks to fellow blogger Pat Cegan for making me realize something I didn’t know before about those Middle East deserts… What a warning to us all…

Source of Inspiration

Not a blade of grass
nor drop of water
not trees, or birds
to fill the air with morning song
the desert lies
filled only with memories
of giant cedar forests
life abundant
until man was born

Can we not learn
from the massive graveyards
bleached bones of greed?
Plant a tree
guard all we have
that never a one shall fall
victim of he
who sees not that
we, too, shall cease to be
as our forests become deserts
marching from sea to sea.
