Mother Earth gives all

Give & Forgive #93

Mother Earth gives all
Land, sea, air—create our home
Let’s give back to her

Anthony Nanfito, Haiku Ponderings

Pondering This Haiku

Happy Earth Day! Today—indeed, every day—is a day to celebrate the amazing gift that Mother Earth has provided for us: life. 

Last week I wrote about the amazingness of trees and how they provide both carbon capturing and breathable oxygen. This week I want to extend that focus of appreciation toward the entire planet and the beautiful (yet delicate) ecosystems that inhabit this planet of ours. 

Without it we wouldn’t be here—I wouldn’t be here to write the post, or haikus, or stories, or do much of anything really. 

After you’re done reading, I encourage you to go out and find a way to give back to Mother Earth. Even if it’s as simple as taking a nature walk to appreciate the diversity of life that exists on this planet. Bonus points if you pick up trash or plant a tree along the way!

Okay, that’s all from me. Go out there and give back to Mother Nature. Go on. Don’t be shy.
