Tupelo 30/30 Project – Day 13 – The Earth is Blue

The Earth is blue… / by Flavia Rocha Loures

Dedicated to my mom, who suggested the title for inspiration 

… and hearts pulsate in multiple colors

Lives vibrate under the daylight

Deep emotions each step of the way

Thoughts of today stars of tonight

The earth is blue and fills my core

Enmeshed in spectacles and unknowns

Intricate patterns that sing and roar

Floating and dancing like bubbles and foams

Infinite colors hypnotize our senses

This mazarine sphere spins on so fast

Sometimes I am overly in a haze

Some nights happen to be the best

Blue is beautiful and so is the Earth

Ever immense it is to enchant

Yet so small for the human footprint

We ought to limit it but maybe we can’t

Blue is this planet breathing sanctuary

We owe you deference and respect

All life is imbued with intrinsic value

Resilient complexity we must protect

But the blue is fading under our pressure

It is changing from something diverse

Into aching shades of black and white

Perhaps into a sad colorless verse

The earth is water and I worship her

We’re all connected in Gaia as one

Brothers and sisters let’s say a prayer

Then rejoice in blue under the sun
