https://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/ has given us a list of words, and mine started with nature, but as all ideas do, changed into my thoughts about how to save nature.
Lost, in whirlpool of bones, myths if you like, run like the willowy wind. Life stops still, in a bid to outrun the other. Rivers rife with life, and as you dangle your feet into its cool, refreshing water, nothing beats the feeling of time passing.
Prey, hunter, and observers. Three linked together in the reality of life. No time to be glum. One needs the other to survive, and in a blink, their world changes. The earth keeps on spinning, growing, changing into something else. In billions of years, will the earth heal?
Trickling spirits, and one will always win as the earth growls, no almost hums to the tinkling tunes of our earth. There is beauty in a violent volcano, but danger, do not go too near. Watch, from a distance.
Not everything is our fault, but some things are.
With a ready supply of plastic, do we rely on it too much? Is there not a way to re-use. Back in the seventies, our milk bottles were picked up every day. New bottles put on our doorstep the next morning. We brought our fruit and vegetables fresh each day. Our meat brought daily – there was no waste. I’ve no problem with plastic, but can’t we find a way of re-using the plastic we already use.
Big shops like Asda, having bottle banks, where we can put our bottles there to be collected. The lids washed, re-used. I see a lot more wooden toys now, and they last longer. When your child has finished with them, sell them on, or give to charity. We live in a world where we easily throw things away, but shouldn’t we think, it’s okay to have second hand.
I grew up in a world of hand me downs. Back then we had jumble sales, and it was fun looking through all the bargains. My mum had a box of toys ready when her grandchildren went there to stay. There are plenty of places to buy second hand. Going to a car boot (garage sale) is fun. Just because it is old, doesn’t mean it can’t be used again.
That way we don’t impact on the beauty of nature.
