Earth Day 2008

soft summer wings
this greener cocktail flies
above the dust /_m

earth day haiku --
writer's block ...
clouds roll pass me /tm

earth day 2008
we the mouthpiece
for trees, the sea, the wind/tc

Long icicle -
a drop of water falls,
toward her centre. /vs

smell of rain
a shiver through the trees--
sound of windchimes/gc

life to love - -
arms wide
hug a tree /fb

earth day
each day I walk
over all this life /kr

walking the trail
I pause by the chaparral--
Earth Day /jd

earth day
for the earthits /sm

small hours
shuffling bedtime
and earth hour/as

Some environmentalists have grown critical of Earth Day, particularly those in the Bright green environmentalism camp. They charge that Earth Day has come to symbolize the marginalization of environmental sustainability, and that the celebration itself has outlived its usefulness

A difficult one that. A friend of mine has written a poem about Earth Day, but in reverse, as her grandmother in Baghdad has only ONE hour of electricity and it is always almost at 430am when she'd rather be sleeping.

Earth Day (2008-04-22) here in Edmonton, Canada was celebrated by the ending of a 5-day snow storm. By late afternoon over a foot of snow had fallen, the Sun had come out, and the snow was beginning to melt.

Long icicle -
a drop of water falls,
toward her centre.

A good group of poems from a good group of poets. And a good group of people, too.
