After reading “Search inside yourself” by Chade-Meng Tan, I joined the campaign “40 days (and 40 nights) of sharing joy“. This campaign has a daily challenge, and Sunday’s challenge was to write a joyful poem. I had never before in my life written a poem in English, but I thought I should give it a try, just for the fun of it. Here is the result:

My Mother Earth is suffering
from humans’ greed and fear
News of war and evil deeds
are always in my ear
But soon this will be changed my friend
believe that this is true
I have begun to meditate
to save the world for you.

I live in a part of the world called Norway with my wife and two daughters. I worked as a telecom engineer for 20 years. Nowadays I am attending a helpdesk supporting colleagues with computer problems. I am also a hobby photographer who believe we ought to pay more attention to how we treat our planet and each other. I trust the reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and I am disappointed that leading politicians in my own and other countries more or less have been ignoring warnings from the scientists for 20 years.
