Fascinations with falling raindrops
Patterns in which they seem to come
Sometimes falling straight from sky
Or in angular directions swept by wind
Nourishing earth with their sweet nectar.

Our good earth critically important to us
Providing food for human sustenance
Warmth and radiance coming from sun,
Rotating variations of seasonal changes
Different times but all necessary for life.

Earth often not receiving recognition deserved
By humans engaged in brutal abusive practices
Raping and pillaging too many of its resources
Without appreciating primeval beauty destroyed
Or finite nature of earth’s highly coveted treasures.

More appreciation needed for our good earth,
Not calculated indifference for its needs
Or being oblivious to searing pains it feels
From abusive pilfering of its rich resources.
