Compassion (Original) Registered & Protected

Original Photography by:+Mitch Debrowner

It interrupted the sunny morning,
It transformed it into gloom,
I awaited the wrath to come,
The Earth cried immediately,
Leaving traces on the rich soil,
All living creature hid from it,
They were compassionate!
Earth gave its last cry; the storm,
It devoured everything on its path;
It was hungry for sympathy.
It reminded us all of the fact;
The Earth is very much alive.
There was peace in the chaos.
Always will be.

  1. Hi Erick, got your email and here I am, sorry I haven't commented sooner. I like the last two lines the best, but overall it's a good poem, lookforward to reading more.

  3. "Earth gave it's last cry," ...very, very good, nature, your soul and poetic metaphor, who could ask for more. I glanced at your Reading List as well, good reading....have you read "Man and Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the Body," by John Paul II??? I think you have the mature depth to handle his vision of espousal love.

  4. Hello! Thank you for that analytical commentary! I have not read that book, but if you recommend it, I will definitely look into it and give it a read. Thank you for the recommendation. I will keep you updated.

  5. Erick,

    I loved this poem for the reasons of human fear and the power of nature.
    At a time when a reawakening may happen, when the balance is disturbed.

    Following your excellent Blog!
