can you ever forgive us
for our careless ways?

    An excellent question.

  2. Too late; too late, I fear…

  3. Mother Earth has been dreadfully abused and disrespected by this human race. There are no more excuses, as the truth is before our eyes. There is no forgiveness…

  4. Aye! I believe the “Forgive them” spoken from the Cross was about all of us, not about a few figures in power. This tiny poem has a huge message.

  5. This small poem speaks volumes.

  6. Oh I ask the same question!

  7. Lovely haiku,


  8. We might well be hurting mother Earth but we hurt ourselves more being blind to the effect on the future for ourselves and our children.

  9. Margaret Elizabeth Bednar

    We have a lot of work to do…

  10. I’m afraid not – I think we’ve damaged the planet way too much for that!

  11. With hearts full of lust and greed we trample our Mother’s face.
