Share The Earth
Author: Dino Hi


To transplant, move from it's environment
Will you survive, this new location and condition
Or will you die, unable to adapt for survival
Will you burn in the sun, hot climate
Maybe your life will drain, in the cold and shade
To blend in your new surroundings
Must get along and share the earth, it's complexity
Food and nutrients you lack
Nothing around for a snack
You must adjust, if you want to live
Be strong, share the water for life
Your new home, new surroundings, and conditions
Get along in this tight space, and share
Or is it "Only the strong survive and the weak must die"
Humans, plants, fish, animals, and bugs, sharing the earth
I just want my little space
Six feet under, with worms and bugs
Still sharing

Hi Dino

This poem has got me wondering, there is a lot of thoughts under the surface I feel. Are you going to move Dino?....not 6ft under yet though!

Good thoughts

Good thoughts. Plan to stay with my worms and bugs. Inspiration? Had to move some plants from it's natural environment to an over grown area. Will they live? Hmmm I wonder? Like us, if we moved to a over populated area. Thanks!

understand now.. thought perhaps you were moving and a bit worried that you would not be happy. Glad it's the plants you're worried about! Haha!! Thanks!
