Here is my response to Brian Vos’s Weekly Poetry Prompt. Theme this week: Earth Day.

Earth Day…

… and I think, I’m confused.

So far, I’ve spent all my days

on Earth.

Was that a mistake?

Is there a problem?

Have I overstayed my welcome?

Perhaps Earth had enough of me.

Should I pack my bag?

Earth Day…

… can I just say:

I like it here.

The seas, the mountains,

and all the boring flat bits in between.

Winds and waves,

sunshine and showers.

I even like the Scottish weather,

go figure that out, if you can!

Earth Day…

… I guess, I could show

my appreciation and gratitude,

sing Earth’s song a little louder,

thank the skies for all their surprises.

Maybe that will extend my visa…
