On an Earth Day Like Today

By Ndaba Sibanda

On An Earth Day Like Today

On an Earth Day like today
I see a ray of light and sway.

I perceive a horizon that seeks
and speaks of health and happiness.

That pledges that the food we feast on,
and the water we drink are cheap and safe.

That safeguards that the air we breathe
and the goods we use are as harmless as possible.

On an Earth Day like today
I see a ray of light and sway.

I become wild with positivity and tenacity
when I see practices of rewilding and restoration.

The modest efforts to protect and respect local groups,
vulnerable wildlife and valuable ecosystems and species.

On an Earth Day like today, I plead for the people who seek
to slow the rate of global warming, pollution and deforestation.
