Earth, our only home,

Is getting warmer each day.

Now’s the TIME for change!


We human beings have long enjoyed the gifts and bounty of Mother Earth!

She has given us life, sustenance, and comfort.

Asking so little in return.

Like clean living.

Honest and responsible stewardship of her rich gifts.

We must wake up NOW and take care of our Mother before irreparable damage is done.

The above Haiku poem has been written for entry into the Vocal+ Haiku Challenge beginning on February 9, 2023 and ending on February 28, 2023.

From the author's mind and heart, a personal challenge is sent forth to everyone who reads this (and those who do not), please join me in researching and learning what each of us can do, and do it, before it's too late.

About the Creator

Linda Rivenbark

I believe in the magic of words, love, and tenacity. There is a world out there that needs to be explored, researched, and written out to try to make some sense of it, and to make a better place for the children of tomorrow.

    So much truth in your profile words. We need a neon sign to the world. We have forgotten history and are doomed to repeat it, go the way of the dinosaurs if not careful.

  • Your Haiku held so much truth! It was so powerful and thought provoking!
