Poem Of The Week - Evolution,Environment and Survival

This week's Monday prompt "Evolution, Environment and Survival " had many wonderful submissions from many creative writers from all around the world, yes, I meant world.Each one has their own creative input for the given prompt .Among so many wonderful poems,I have selected a poem by Donna Swanson " EARTH WAS WHAT HE NAMED HER" for the Poem of the Week today.

This poem is so profound in its creativity ,of how the Earth was born.Forget the "Big Bang theory" and the other theories of evolution, this one has a poetic touch to it.The Mother Earth fillings of the oceans below and the mountains above ,clothing in mantle embellished with sparkling coral sands takes us to the imaginative creation of Earth by an hidden force in her blog ecoesfromtheheartland.Just read and enjoy! 

The tiny planet shuddered,
drew clouds around her like a garment.
“Name me!” she sighed,
“for I am lonely.”
Lost amongst the star shine
of a billion suns revolving;
she huddled in her orbit
and waited for the day.
Slowly dawned the presence
of a mighty force around her;
and she felt the power singing
as He swept the night away.
Confusion turned to order,
as He clothed her in a mantle
made of misty mountain meadows
and sparkling coral sands.
He placed upon her shoulders
tall woodlands filled with flowers;
and for her skirts deep waters
hemmed with foaming strands of pearl.
Then closer came the presence;
knelt in holiness upon her
and from her soil He brought forth sons
to tend her fragrant gardens.
Earth was what He named her;
jewel of the heavens;
fragile integration
of the majesty of life.
