What on Earth?~by Paul F. Lenzi



What on Earth?


“Green Earth” by Robert Rodriguez

how does the bird consider its shadow

react to its passing reflections in glass

can it marvel at knowing its special existence

its place in the animate telltale of skies

I would fly upon free-flowing wind if I could

take particular pleasure in being at one with

the beautiful blue peering down at lush green

skirting mountains and gliding through valleys

whose glistening rivers feed sparkling seas

all to wonder from breathtaking vantage of

high airy precincts so perfectly hinting of heaven

why denizens wingless and seemingly witless

behave with indifference and even hostility

laid to the life-giving grants of a kindly creation
