On an electromagnetic spectrum
The naked human eye
Only sees a minuscule drop of the universe.

For here in the now lies
Colorful clouds,
Indigo skies,
and Elements aloud.

Where daydreams & nightmares come out to play.
Where musical melodies exude from raindrops.
Where –
Each step you take is equivalent to two steps back and one step forward.

A bright place:
Candy gardens.
A vibrant space:
Rainbow houses.

A spaceship to slip through the milky way.
A pocket sized time traveling machine.
A constellation full of secrets.
A butterfly species that duplicates itself with each flutter.

For here in the now lies
a place.
Full of synchronistic heart beats
In tune with the cosmic caravans.

Is what you think and see what it really is?
Will you take a step towards – change?

Blink and flowers grow out from your eyes.
Take a deep breath of lavender.
Allow yourself to be surprised.

As Mama Earth laughs,
And grabs onto your heart strings,
Tickling your mind
& grounding your energy.

For here in the now lies
A reflective, iridescent and enchanting
Peter Max World.

    Crystal Davidson ,
    I really enjoyed reading your poem , “The earth and Us”, I liked how you used complex and interesting vocabulary talking about the Earth’s natural beauty. My favorite line in the poem is the first one ,” On an electromagnetic spectrum The naked human eye. Only sees a minuscule drop of the universe.” This line got me very hooked into reading your poem , it really caught my attention and had me thinking what point you were trying to get the reader to understand. I think that line is trying to say humans have only seen a very small part of the entire universe and we are unaware of how much more there is to see. The term you use in the line is “Electromagnetic spectrum” , this term is classified by wavelengths into radio waves , x-rays and other types of rays. This unique science term you used in this line really makes the reader think and put together the understanding of this first line in the poem. I think you should expand on this line and try to do further research to clarify how “Electromagnetic Spectrum” fits into the first line of the poem. Overall I thought this article was very intriguing to read , I enjoyed it a lot.
