This Fragile Earth

This fragile Earth beneath our feet,
beautiful and frail.

The thin veneer of life
That’s smeared across its face,

Once foolishly broken
Can never be replaced.

• “This Fragile Earth” is from Luke Eastwood’s recently published book of poetry entitled Through the Cracks in the Concrete the Wilderness Grows
