Paradise on earth?
No comparison but a
human sanctuary

Greed and self interests
To meet human wants had forced
earth into conflicts

Law of the jungle
in tempered form remains to
give semblance of peace 


  1. what peace is there in competition? survival of the fittest
    and in the end who will they then enjoy that peace with?

  2. Earth is indeed sacred. The tribal peoples knew that - they knew nothing of ownership, nor of greed. Brian is right - and I'd add Gandhi: "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind." You may not get many readers this week, Hank, but you really stirred this woman with a beautiful meditation on what matters most. Peace to you, Amelita

  3. the beautiful puzzle!

    ALOHA to YOU

  4. we strive for peace; let it be

    much love...

  5. Peace to you ~ my the world 'get the message' ~ Hope ~ thanks, carol, xxx

  6. Greed always seems to trump peace

  7. Strong message Hank caught in a wonderful trio of haiku/senryu ... Mother Earth is crying for all of us ... we must find our love for her back and cherish her.
