Earth is Groaning: Photo Challenge

Watching the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian,

The utter destruction in its wake.

I feel the Earth groaning beneath my feet,

Asking, “People, what more will it take?”

I don’t know how to answer the question,

As I contemplate the electric sky.

Research is seen as liberal gibberish,

Not believed, no matter how hard scientists try.

I will amass many of my car trips into one,

Seeking to lessen my effect on the Earth.

It’s a small gesture, I am more than aware,

But, I  still value this planet’s worth.

Written for the Photo Challenge #280 from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, the photo was posted as found in Also the September 2019 Writing prompt from Putting My Feet in the Dirt: Electric Sky, and Your Daily Word prompt is Research.
