Earth: An Entree

Lest we forget
You are only on loan to us
Created by a God with far more in mind

You are a place of unimaginable beauty
But only a poor version
Of what is still to come

You remind us from time to time
In ways we can't ignore
This is temporary
We shouldn't get too comfortable

You rage and roar like a wild animal
Beautiful yet dangerous
And your power
Does not go unnoticed

We seek to fully understand you
And we wonder with the limitations
of our human knowledge
Why the inexplicable still happens

We fail to grasp that you are not here to be understood
You are a precious gift to us
To be enjoyed for this lifetime
But a mere entree to the forever after

Those who live in the knowledge
Of the City of Blinding Lights
Grieve for you
Seeing that which gives us breath and sustains us in this life
So torn apart is utterly heartbreaking
And almost unbearable

But we bear it because of the acceptance
That there are unfathomable mysteries of the universe
Yet to be revealed

Imagine Earth's beauty magnified a thousand times
Imagine an earth with no pain, war or poverty
Imagine more than you could ever imagine

And you're still not even close

You, Earth a sweet first taste
Of the most delicious meal we will ever eat.

But you are just that.


There is more to come.
