An Earth Day Blessing, Part I

Leave a comment

The challenge is “write an abecedarian poem – a poem in which the word choice follows the words/order of the alphabet.”    It is a busy weekend for me.   I do not have time to craft a coherent 26 line poem. So I give you this brief Earth Day blessing—- part one.

A
Blessing on all the
Children of the earth.
Defiant, they stand,
Eager to give birth,
Fearlessly, as a movement
Grows from their
Hands that grip
Iron swords turned into ploughshares.
