Howls echo from the mountain top

Moaning in tandem with the wind

Bewailing the plight of our home

Praying the rape of earth will stop


Will the upright ones ever see?

Actions that destroy our planet

Everything in disharmony

No more land on which to roam free


Please hear our nightly plaintive cries

Wild ones are victims of your greed

As you fill the air with disease

Break away from your many lies


Save our planet!

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
