Earth Day

We tread each day on
an abundance of riches
we don't acknowledge

You give and we take
we don't replace but take more
ignoring your groans

I celebrate you
gentle sustainer of life
I celebrate you

Yes, we celebrate all that sustains. (May that celebration include care and sustenance, as well. I know I tend to honor Mother Earth in my thoughts and at my altar, then forget to buy recyclable goods, e.g.)

You are so right on our not acknowledging all we take. All three were good, but I really loved your first one.
