These Grounded Earthlings…

They feel rooted
Only if they immerse
In the soil of nurturing earth
Or sprout from its womb
As a young sapling

P1060879.JPGThey love pecking
The bare warm earth
Replete with little bounties
Of their daily food
That they love eating

**

DSCN1831.JPGThey love earthing
To lush green earth
The oh-so-soft cushioned carpet
That caresses and soothes
Their bare skin

**

They love setting fire
To their Mother Earth’s
Sprawling fertile forests
And possess its vast lands
They then call their own

(Now, deforestation is not just due to human malpractices or ill intentions of using forest land for businesses like cattle-ranching; as fires are also due to drought and overall climate change. But then again humans are the only species who ought to know how to save earth’s assets rather than cut them down or burn them for selfish reasons. Our verdant earth’s forests are home to so many species.)
