    Your haiku is so appropriate. I hope your message strikes home.

    Reblogged this on Covey View and commented:
    Vahti’s message is truth. Read and act.

    Great haiku, Vashti. I’m a huge believer in recycling and I will recycle what ever I can. Mother Nature would love this haiku and it’s message.

    Love it… and what a pic! 🙂

      Hi Kev! I saw that picture on Tumblr and it mesmerized me. I copied it because it inspired this haiku and I wanted to share it. I wish I knew who the remarkable photographer was so that I can give her or him credit and possibly do a feature on her too. I am happy you enjoyed the post. 🙂

      Hi Teagan! You’re welcome. I believe that it’s important to mention this topic every so often. It’s an important and very real problem. 🙂

    A life saving necessity for all life and nature. Extremely topical. Thought provoking.

    I also love the photo. Saving the planet is very important. I recycle and do what I can. This is a subject that should be mentioned periodically. Nice haiku.

    Very important message and food for thought for all. We try our best to treat Mother Earth with the love and respect she deserves, and more importantly we try to encourage others. Makes me think I should incorporate more about it into my blogs. Tx Vashti!

      Hi! It’s great to hear from you. I think if we all do our part to care and create awareness things might get much better. 😀 xx

    LOVE this. ❤ We need to treat Gaia well. Nice take on these words.

      Thank you Sarah! I’m so glad you enjoyed the post. If we treat ‘Mother Nature’ right, she will treat us right. 😀 xx
