Nature

     I recently wrote a poem about conservation in nature. Each stanza is a Cinquain, a type of poem with one word in the first line as the title, two adjectives to describe the title in the second line, three actions usually ending with -ing that the title does, four words about how the writer (me) feels and one word in the fifth line that calls the title to mind. A Garland Cinquain is six cinquains in a row with the sixth one composed of the first line of the first cinquain, the second line of the second one etc.
Nature
Gorgeous, limitless
Thriving, living, breathing
One of God’s creations
Life
Animals
Ignored, undervalued
Flying, swimming, running
They brighten my day
Wildlife
Plants
Diverse, everywhere
Suffering, dying, falling
An animal’s food source
Trees
Water
Clear, vital
Flowing, dropping, gushing
Within all of us
Ocean
Humans
Capable, smart
Thinking, working, inventing
But with wrongful intent
Why?
Nature
Ignored, undervalued
Suffering, dying, falling
Within all of us
Why?
