Talking to Uranus on Earth Day

Today is day 23 of Na/GloPoWriMo (poetry writing month) and Earth Day. In ancient Greece, Uranus was “Father Sky,” husband of Gaia who was Mother Earth. If we could talk to Uranus today, what would he tell us about the glories of our planet? Enjoy the poem.


Talking to Uranus on Earth Day

Uranus
Baby blue
Spinning seventh in line,
holding many moons close
as you cock your head
in that friendly way.
Oh husband of Gaia, Mother Earth,
on this Earth Day
help us to love and respect
our mother planet.
Help us to see her as you do
through your winter eyes,
peering past gossamer rings,
seeing the beauty of your one true love.
Seeing her rich blue ocean bosom,
her lush body green,
her laughter in rain,
her character in mountains and rolling plains,
in Uluru, in eagles, and Niagara falls.
Help us to see
her love in a spring day,
her passion in a hurricane,
and gentleness in an aspen tree.
