2023 Albuquerque American Place Garden Psalms Poems Poems of a Nature

Earth Day

On this Earth Day 23
It’s a beautiful Day to Be
Out in the sun even as the wind carries
A warm spring day to make us cheery!

As we clear away clutter
That’s made such a mess,
Like a shed full of old camping gear
And a garage full of Christmas.

We think of how lucky to live on the earth
Sunny sun, diggy dirt, wet water, seedy birth
It all starts today and there’s so much to do
Bursts of growth, reaching out to see you

The Gardener who patiently watches time fly by
As everything at once blooms with life
And welcomes the death with all its fertility
As it brings forth new life and new creativity.

By Makar
