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.
