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.
Photographed on my way to Malaga Airport.
Seen in Malaga, on the walls surrounding a Secondary School
Steel over steel, up
Above the graffiti walls,
Art and Science, steel grey.
