The news is filled with stories about disappearing species. As species die and people crowd to see the last ones, we end up wiping out the rest of them and their habitats along with other species who happen to be in the way. How can we be so arrogant to not consider this or anything else we do as a race to this planet? We are the creatures with the most developed brains but what do we do? We want what we want and to hell with whatever gets in our way.

A person photographing the stars also shows the movement of fireflies on a summer night. From Giphy.
I wrote this after reading about Fireflies and their habitats disappearing due to light pollution and encroachment.
Seed By Seed
Pushing through the rocky soil
instinctively knowing which way to go
a single seed in an age-old plan
stirs inside and starts to grow.
Each containing a miracle
knowledge inside, ready to guide
seasons come and seasons go
sowing seeds both far and wide.
Once we’re born our journeys began
putting our roots down as we need
we grow profusely in our gardens-
all of this from a single seed.

This poem sure did go around with me but I finally finished it. Please excuse my cosmic use of seed and stuff. Lol! Written with my friends from Poets United for the prompt, Gardens.
My back is out so I can’t ride my bike right now. (Sad emoji here.) I realize I haven’t written in some time but I’ve been in touch with most of you on Facebook and such. Just dipping my toes back in the water. I enjoyed this prompt for the beginning of summer. Be around to read of course! Happy Summer! (I’m definitely a person who uses too many “!”)
is like a coffin
my body lies dead
in wait for my demise.
near the windowpane
into the room
over my face
in a death mask.
with random thoughts
cobwebs of dreams

Sleep is so much like death, I often think about it.
The artwork, A Matter Of Life And Death by Fay Collins is the prompt for today at dVerse~Poets Pub.
in deepest forest
defeating the darkest corners
bringing light to the unseen
illuminating my thoughts
