About the poetess

Anna lives in Australia. She doesn’t only write poems. She is a songwriter and composer. On her own website and Instagram, you can find more of her work. She uses the name Anya C Poetry on Instagram.

Anna considers herself to be a keen environmentalist, as we can read on her website. That is why she wrote this poem for our poetry challenge.

About the poem

Just like many of us, Anna has some concerns about the future. The impact we have on the environment is very big.

“The poem is about the impact of waste/ being wasteful and the environment – how we could help reduce this impact by using sustainable living practices.”

This poem confronts us, with our own actions. Actions that lead to the destruction of this planet we live on. Anna had some doubts whether to send in her poem. We are glad she did!

Our global crisis has created a cure. No.
A treatment for what is in store.
New seasons simmer, shorelines bore.
Plastics not fake, its sweet.
Everlasting, a love we adore.
Drank daily, for health.
Are you sure?
Intestinal nurdle artwork, framed.
Mammals fattened by unnatural floating,
wild material machine. Unseen.
Where does your waste ream?
What can I do?
It takes more than one. It takes society,
globally to do what needs to be done.
Our footprint is massive, weighty.
I’m floored.
Join mother earth,
on a journey here and abroad.
Full of disbelief and open scorn.
It’s worth the attempt to help her adorn.
To help heal her sores, prevent more welts.
Because, ice really melts.
Anna Campbell
