Poetry Challenge: Mother Eart

There is a lot of talk about climate change. While some try to bring forward their claims, that it’s all a hoax, others try to share their views on climate change. At The Ministry of Poetic Affairs, we want to do something with these thoughts. Instead of focussing on the false scientific claims, that nothing is going on, we decided to use the might of the pen. And to do this, we need your help. Here is our Poetry Challenge entitled Mother Earth.

The idea is simple. Write about our planet. Or about the climate change. Let your creativity flow and we will look forward reading your contributions. The challenge is one to consider when you are growing your audience of viewers on social media. The poem you wrote, is not only visible on the social media channels we use, it is also visible on our website. This makes it easier for those who don’t use the social medium you are using, to read your poem.

Mother Earth

We chose the title Mother Earth since this is a common phrase. But, there is no need to include this phrase in your title. As long as this one is about the beautiful planet we live on. It goes without saying, that any reference to climate changes will be welcomed with nothing more than positivity!
