Day 22 – Our prompt for the day (optional, as always). In honor of Earth Day, I’d like to challenge you to write a georgic. The original georgic poem was written by Virgil, and while it was ostensibly a practical and instructional guide regarding agricultural concerns, it also offers political commentary on the use of land in the wake of war. The georgic was revived by British poets in the eighteenth century, when the use of land was changing both due to the increased use of enlightenment farming techniques and due to political realignments such as the union of England, Scotland, and Wales.
Your Georgic could be a simple set of instructions on how to grow or care for something, but it could also incorporate larger themes as to how land should be used (or not used), or for what purposes.
Nature is mystery,
Agriculture is one such natural history,
A beautiful creation by god for the needy,
Wait patiently as this process is not easy…..
The colours, flavour is all decided,
Accordingly to the season & climatic conditions,
It is not limited,
As it is filled with health benefits and nutrition’s…
The Earth is a magician,
Vegetables, fruits, flowers is no limitation,
Increase in man’s gluttonous has led to exploitation,
High time to take action on Mother Earth’s protection….
