Fragile Mother Earth


Mother Earth
thou art the best
of God's creations
in the solar system.

But because of
man’s ingenuity
his utter foolishness
born of greed
devoid of concern
only to meet
his insatiable hunger 
he is hell bent to
harness all
of nature’s gifts
and its potentials
reducing it
to 
fragile state.

Uncontrolled dumping
of toxic and noxious
non-biodegradable wastes
rampant deforesting
of its vast forests resources
mindless excavations

of its mountains and seas
causing tectonic plates
movements and disturbances
resulting in nature’s retributions
through earthquakes
and frequent 
tremors.

Prompts: fragile, rampant, tremors
