I want to sew up the ozone
pick up every bit of plastic
and fix our planet.

I feel the urge to mend our threads
crochet coral reefs, knit forests and
patchwork this world back together

I need to tear down the garish
renovate forsaken buildings
chip the flaking paint away

to make our mark beautiful
eschew the human attitude
and soothe the scars we’ve inflicted.

The things we make need a purpose
worthy of the nature they replace
creators proud of what we create

sustainably designed
and inspired by life
less harm than harmony –

but I’m just one person
hoping poetic resolution
will spur this revolution.

Happy Earth Day!
