Life is Simple: Just Add Water

We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one. 
             ------Jacques Yves Cousteau

The truth is the natural world is changing.   It is the most precious thing we have, and we need to defend it.
      ------ David Attenborough

A lake is a landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. 
It is earth’s eye; of which the beholder sees and measures the depth of his own nature.

Earth’s Eye: Can It Be Clearer?

Can it be clearer?
Mirrored in lakes.
Echoing life,
Nature’s pulse is our own.
It is all there.
Can it be clearer?
Our bridge to tomorrow
Our reflections in her.
Gorging on her bounty,
Without thought it started.
Neglecting her signs--
Used and discarded.
Becoming clearer.
Immeasurable harm
Manifestation of deeds
Nature disarmed.
Rivers and fields
Dominion of man
Need to be healed,
While we still can.
       G. Hill

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
      ------Genesis 1:26

Before it's too late, we need to make courageous choices that will recreate a strong alliance between man and Earth.
