What greeted us was this.
This was what the entire plain offered. According to the man who tends the hillside, wild lilies have not been blooming well since recent years. The reason could be well again due to global warming. Bear asked, ' Where across the wide plain should we go in order to find the lilies then? ' The man answered, ' Umm... sorry, no lilies. It looks like they're not blooming this year at all... '
We took a rest at the spot below. No... I wasn't cross at the zero blooms, though it felt like a sweet promise denied. As we gazed upon the pasture in the cooling breeze, a feeling of emptiness swept over me... So this is all we have left for our future generations.
Our children may be even more deprived. They probably won't sight a single wild flower, because we ' took ' them all... If this is described as a feast, we must have taken all the most delicious, juciest parts, and left nothing but bones and scraps for our children.
The bees will have nothing to work on. Maybe, gone are the butterflies too. These poor creatures must be totally confused when they are brought into the world with nothing to pursue.
Some of the wild flowers looked as if they are burnt even before they could bloom. The harsh reality stares at me as loud as the barren plains, I thought I could hear its plea...
' Is there anything you can do better to help us? Can you take the trouble to peform those eco-friendly tasks? '
So this is all that's left from the once gorgeous plains.
Yes, we're considered fortunate to be able to see them now. Perhaps, they will be here no more in another few years...
Dear friends, I'm sure that we can help improve earth's health with every single eco-friendly effort we make.
Is there anything that you're faithfully performing, keep up the good work. Are there actions that you've been avoiding because of inconvenience, do you think you can help by performing one of them first?
I hope that you've heard the flowers today.
