Postcard from Earth

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. Helping the earth heal will help us live in the future. Today, I read a wonderful prompt for #writeout from the National Writing Project / National Park Service two week celebration of parks and the outdoors. Click the links for many ways and different different prompts to explore and write about the outdoors.

For this poem I found this idea from Park Ranger Tarryn of the Grand Canyon National Park. Tarryn suggested this:

“Imagine yourself standing on the landscape one million years in the future. Create a postcard depicting what you see. On the back, write a letter describing your experience. How will our world continue to change?”

#WriteOut Daily Spark

Back on Earth

Everywhere

In every space

A garden:

On the roof

A planting for each season

Variety that’s pleasing,

In each window- greenery shines-

A balcony of herb and floral vines

All around in any place

Path or road or waterways

All along grow the edibles

Sustainable delectables

As communities together

Created an earth that’s better.
