Go Green


Many innovative ways to Go Green.
Despite wanting abundance, please refuse.
Purchase greatness, and remember, reuse.
Foods you no longer eat, in compost, rots.
Items can have double lives, recycle.
Sometimes, it's just too much stuff, please reduce.

A small step that's worthy is to reduce,
Creative mindsets help us to Go Green.
It's not enough to only recycle,
There will be times to stop, think and refuse.
New knowledge is that it's good to let rot,
A different way to let Nature reuse.

What was old can be new when we reuse, 
A great way to assist us to reduce.
Reminds us of "Not too much" when foods rot,
New mindful habits help us to Go Green.
Research to know what you want to refuse,
Turn away from what you can't recycle.

It's sad that plastic can't be recycled,
Thank goodness there are still ways to reuse.
When I see plastic, I try to refuse;
I reuse jars to help me to reduce.
I started a compost to help Go Green,
Great place to allow my food waste to rot.

In nature, all's healthy after it rots,
Old nutrients for growth is recycled.
When you want to connect to Earth, Go Green.
Become one with everything you reuse,
We're loving Earth when we choose to reduce.
We love ourselves when we choose to refuse.

Take note of items you need to refuse,
Take time to nurture what healthily rots.
Abundance found when we choose to reduce,
In every action, our love's recycled.
All life's energy has chance to reuse
Make a difference by choosing to Go Green 

Please refuse when it can't be recycled,
Let it rot only when you can't reuse 
Love Earth, Go Green while trying to reduce.

This Sestina was inspired by the 5 Rs (Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot) to help Mother Earth and my recent call to Go Green
