Encroachment on Nature

People have invaded the wilderness

Homes are built besides forests

Trees tower overhead in the distant

And there’s constant logging

Mankind has definitely encroached on nature

Wildlife is crying out for help

Creatures of all kinds are losing their habitats

People are now affected

By species carrying viruses

So they are infected with diseases

They never experienced before

CO₂ is heating up the planet

Bringing in its wake unprecedented storms

For months there have been violent winds, rain, and flooding

That has been impacting many Northern and Southern states

Wildfires are raging in the West

Homes and businesses are going up in flames

Thousands are forced to flee

And Washington, Oregon, and California

Are in the throes of such a crisis

People have to be able to live in harmony with nature

“Supreme Spirit, help us learn the best way to be with nature.  Enable us to live in harmony with its abundant gifts that surround us.” Amen
