IBMC #07: The News and Paper Challenge | Inspired Haiku

I was looking for an inspiration on how to convey the news re humankinds disregard for nature in general. The ban on hunting in Alaska being lifted also fired my inspiration, thanks to both. Eyes + Words poem, “Nature” expanding it. My thanks to both.


Protect Nature

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

natures threatened
world wide desolation
Alaska’s nature too

i should of guessed
just a thought nature was
of your being

to me natures life
beauty its diversity
how many species

ambiguities
the nature of English
nature of nature

idiosyncrasies
of human beings rife
mostly good some bad

natures natural
disasters without malice
what has man learned naught

San Francisco
disaster in the waiting
what has man learned naught

in ignorance
indifferent to what harms done
lives in denial

evolutions real
look out your window see it
natural deeds

i rest my case
nature can not let it go
fighting but losing

can we help
oh yes stop fighting wars
give peace a chance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
