NaPoWriMo

National Poetry Writing Month is a poetry writing challenge to write a poem a day, which takes place every year in April. Follow the link to find out more, be inspired, get daily prompts and meet other poets!

For Day 22, 22nd April, Earth Day, my poem is an acrostic combination of a tanka (Earth) and a haiku (Day).

Earth, precious planet,
An oasis in vast space,
Repairing man-made bruises,
Tarnished, wounded, weakened, yet
Healing heavy heart.

I took this photo from a plane over the Canary Islands at sunset.
Dazzling skies, clean land, 
Alluring seas, lakes, oceans,
Yesterday once more.
****
Few sights are more breathtaking than the view of the sky from a plane.
