REVIVE

Let us stand
sister to sister,
shoulder to shoulder
rejoicing in our
almond, cocoa, lily, lemony skin
proud to be working with our hands
to plant seeds of trust
with deep roots
that will
breathe forests alive.

Let us
embrace the sway of our hips
cultivate the iron in our hearts
sun the rewrite of herstory
by reviving the lungs of this soil.

INSPIRATION/CAUSE FOR THE DAY: TREE SISTERS

poem inspired by tree sisters

 

Tree Sisters is an organization that is led by women in a quest to reverse climate change across the globe. Is it even possible? They think they can! The plan is to recreate the tropical forests within 10 years by planting a billion trees, and the plan involves all of you. The organization is inspirational to say the least. I love their vision to make humanity the “saviors” rather than “destroyers” of this planet. Become a Tree Sister Today!


For each letter this April, I shall be presenting a poem inspired by ‘something’ that is making our world a little bit kinder, a little bit greener. The ‘something’ is a mix of people, movements, thoughts, or organizations who are having a positive influence on the world around us. Read all the other posts in ‘Poetry For A Cause’ series by linking the button below.

This post is part of the We Are the World Blogfest, a monthly event created by Damyanti Biswas and Belinda Witzenhausen to showcase stories of hope and light.
