Day 22 of NaPoWriMo

“Earth Day 2013”

Once the family backyard was lined

with rows and rows of treasured veggies.

Once respect was given to the changing

of the seasons for each gift they brought.

The hard work, put forth for harvest,

was rewarded by all the living that gathered.

Once the yard was filled with a cornucopia of wild life

and with the city, just twenty Jeopardy questions, or so, away.

Those days are truly  missed.

As the routines of yesterday gave gratitude to nature

and all of its wonder, today is littered with tech.

So that time, gladly revered, is now but a memory;

as the earth soon shall be.
