Today is Earth Day, They Say

Today is Earth Day, they say? – 
World in a day. 

I don’t understand; never mind the world. Even the word doesn’t stay 
contained. Earth: close your eyes.

Deep brown secrets, flaming stone. Blue of a planet framed
In void – clouds, monsoon, cycles and sex: miracle and molecule aligned,

Darkness on a moon, phosphorescence on the tides.
Shoals, eggs, turning, and time for the long-drawn question of life – 

Celebrate? Propagate. 
Chlorophyll, single-cell, vertebrate: 
This honor is fractal, yet means one thing.

Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart
Not destroy what my mind can’t comprehend.

I dream curiosity and write words that change brains.
