Osmosis

Once, as a traveller in a distant far off land
on palm lined beaches Ďneath a golden sun,
I gazed in wonder at the stretching sand
and knew, at last, where paradise had begun.
For wrinkled tide washed beaches and blue seas
showed ancient Gods so well our passions read
and stamped celestial knowledge on the place
where us mere mortals made our earthly bed.
Placed on a pedestal, that reached up to the sky,
mankind was gifted by our heavenís grace
to live where beauty always blessed the eye
Ö.but half the world is now mankindís disgrace.
This boundless heavenly gift for all to share
by Manís own hand becomes so very rare.
