Reliable earth

In this world, I’ve been
three decades out of ten
Every now and then
I stop and wonder when
will the earth stop spinning?
Before the final inning?
We assume it keeps giving
like it has since the beginning.
But they say not to assume,
yet every day we just resume
expecting seeds to bloom
and sunshine every June.
But what if it were days
without the sun’s abundant rays?
Are there different ways
to receive its gift and praise?
It’s hard to understand it —
this planet where we’re planted.
However, we don’t have to,
just don’t take it for granted.
