Poem a Day, Day 22

Today's prompt was for Earth Day, so in the 'Two fer Tuesday' tradition, the challenge was to write a poem about either nature or industrial. I think I combined both...


The weight of the pack on my back

The smell of pine on the air

This is where I belong

Climbing these mountains

No cell phone

No computer

No television

This is how God meant man to be

But there's a call I'm expecting

I haven't checked my email in a while

I miss my favorite show

So I descend back to civilization

Back to pollution and decay

I am still a man of this earth

this century

Civilization blinds me

Until I just can't see any other way

-Justin M. Howe
