Leave a trail

By Maria Editha Garma-Respicio

 

Rainbow’s glistening at the horizon

Pulsating the prophetic vision

As it breath the undying covenant

Oh, so enchanting, so poignant!

 

 Luna’s silhouetting the dark sky

Melodious night breeze rises up high

Gives rhythm to this melancholy mood

Beseeching this life won’t get screwed

 

 As the tide rises and falls

Kisses the pristine sand and crawls

May this life’s journey makes impact

Fulfill its purpose without distract

 

In the restoration of our planet

Of this blue earth we all inhabit

Like the dove that has wisdom

That gives elixir healing, not phantom

 

 May the virgin tropical forest

The sanctuary of wild animal

Be back to its former glory

Humans awake, stop mountain quarry

 

 At the bottom of the divine sea

Aquatic creatures are begging to thee

Suffocated by litters everywhere

Bring back the crystal water, show care

 

 At dawn, appears the elusive bluebird

Reminding us that we are stewards

Rebuking insolences burried in the soul

Beaconing us to that one goal

 

Conserve and protect the environment

Do your role, be a living testament

Make this world greener than before

Create a trail for your kin to explore...
