Happy Earth Day

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.

Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine

flows into trees. The winds will blow

their own freshness into you,

and the storms their energy,

while cares will drop off

like autumn leaves.

We should all do a better job taking care of our home. It is like one grain of sand on the beach. One among many more but once it is lost it is gone forever.

Thank you Denise. Lovely poem. Wish I'd posted something for ED. Instead of posts about boats which now are making me feel a tad bit guilty. (We live in a tiny house, small footprint, so I try to rationalize the boat away.)
