It felt as if time had stood still, and we were walking with the First Peoples
Among vibrant blue waters and green trees and mountains covered in white.
Inimitable creations that we should take pride in and work to conserve,
For once they are gone, it’ll be too late to find solutions to our plight.
So, I will travel now, so I can imprint this indelible beauty on my heart,
While still hoping for change in attitudes, so that generations to come
Can feast their eyes on such loveliness and feel the peace that it imparts,
But my hopes aren’t high, for on climate issues, people choose to remain dumb.
