The Earth Will Recover

The earth will recover from

us when we are gone.

It is resilient.

 

There are signs right now.

There are many, many

acres of nature

 

areas crowded with old,

red pine forests that

belong much

 

farther north where high

branches could breath

and thrive in the

 

cold, crisp air and ward

off the diseases of

the south, so

 

clear-cut they were gone

to lumber leaving

war-torn

 

devastation for the hikers,

joggers and their dogs

not to mention

 

the flora and fauna. Two

years later, native

plants and white

 

pines shine in the sun

and the hikers,

joggers and

 

their dogs have returned

along with the flora

and fauna.

 

With a little help from her

friends, Mother Nature

healed herself.
