Poem: Our Earth Day aka Protecting the EPA #NaPoWriMo 23

Bicycle-powered tunes

Bubbles and balloons

Strollers and babies

Neighbors and newbies

Homeless and recovering

Lovely people lovering

LED lights

Vegan bites

Bees and butterflies

On cheeks and hands

Native flowers and

Dandelion lands

Climate action


Seed starting

Sensory gardening



Kite making tables

Composting bagels

Boxes for bees

Cards for refugees

Cloth and bags

Jewels and soap

Hand-made wonders

Full of hope

Biodiversity enriches wildlife

Diversity is my rich life

I speak for the trees

And the trees speak to me

Uniting the neighbors and the nations

Protecting the EPA

This and more

Was our Earth Day

Seeds were planted

In many a heart

Every oak tree

Comes from such

A tiny start

And every forest

Is made of lots of trees

From people like us

And days like these



About the poem:

As volunteer coordinator for the Congress Park Earth Day Festival, I was over the top happy to see 300-400 people loving Mother Earth, if only for a day. I know it’s a start.
