The Magnificent Air

Invisible air links all living things
Whether animals, plants or some other
Throughout Nature, this message rings
Living things share the air with each other

Food and water that animals take in
And oxygen from the air they inhale
Provide energy after processing
And carbon dioxide which they exhale

From carbon dioxide, plants take carbon
And incorporate it in their structure
This is through photosynthesis action
Which releases oxygen thereafter

These actions are repeated endlessly
Asserting the link between living things
It's a glorious marvellous unity
And the magnificent song Nature sings

About this poem:
The air we breathe is probably one of the most taken for granted things. It unites all living things. It levels the playing field. Some persons may consider human life to be superior to plant life. Yet, plants play a vital role in sustaining human life by replenishing the oxygen content of the air. They assimilate, into their structure, the carbon from the carbon dioxide human beings exhale and release the oxygen through photosynthesis, thereby replenishing the air's oxygen, which is vital for human existence

(iambic pentameter).

True natures relationship with all living things. Without air we would have no existence. We are blessed that we can breath every morning we wake up. Yet we do not take care of what is given to us. We need to take care of this planet so all living things can benefit of it. Thanks for sharing Socrates your poem. SM

This poem is a great reminder to be grateful and not take for granted the planet, animals and each other . The air we breathe and the beauty of the nature that surrounds us came free and there is a heavy price to pay being selfish and irresponsible in our ways for neglecting the care it requires to maintain this prescious gift for future generations
I wonder what the animals, trees would say to us if only they could speak.
