The Earth

If there were no life
Would not the Earth
Still have beauty?

If skies were not
So blue
Nor clouds so shapely
Set against blue

If tides never rose
To purl across sand

If all were stone
Pocked with volcano
Cluttered with crater
Naked of everything air

Would not the Earth
Still have beauty
If there were no eyes

To catalogue her wonders?

    Like a tree falling in the forest….does it make a sound if no one is there to hear it? Beautifully thought-provoking, Rae. I love this picture of the moon. We sometimes look at it through our telescope on clear nights. Amazing.

      I would love to have a telescope! I’d probably get frostbite, though. The night I took this photo, it was so cold that I was actually relieved when clouds moved in.
