E is for Errant Environmental Ecocide

Day 5 of Blogging from A to Z.  Today’s letter is E
E is for Errant Environmental Ecocide

if not this day then
when will we accept that we
court a silent spring.

I won’t belabor the point. The haiku says it all.  We know the bees are dying; we know that they atree brancehes 2re essential to our food production. Even those folks who profess to care, spray their lawns, trees, and even themselves with poisons and wonder that they and their gardens do not thrive as they once did.


errant –  adjective \ˈer-ənt, ˈe-rənt\
behaving wrongly, going outside the proper area

eco·cide  noun \ˈē-kə-ˌsīd, ˈe-, -(ˌ)kō-\
the destruction of large areas of the natural environment especially as a result of deliberate human action

    Stoping by on the 6th day of the #Challenge. I’m having fun finding fellow writers. If you have time or interest, I’m writing about gardening and related topics this month. Stop by if you can.
