Has Anyone Seen My Top Writer Tag?

I seem to have misplaced one

I have an environmental degree.
Yet, somehow, though I am a nature poet
(and a dedicated one at that!)

I am embarrassed to say that I
have been very reckless —
irresponsible with what was once given me.

This, is so embarrassing.

I left my Top Writer tag
in Climate Change
at the top of my profile,

right there at the TOP of my profile,
a deserved spot for such
a thing so close to my beating heart

but now, oh now,
I have misplaced it.

I have outright LOST
this precious symbol
of my dedication to
the causes of bees and things

Gone — have you seen it?

Perhaps it was swifted away
to hide with the bees

I seem to be having trouble
finding those too
and the butterflies
and the birds
and species
after
species

gone.

Christina Ward 👻 is a poet and naturist from NC. She really should be writing more poetry about climate change — but apparently has been slipping. She promises to try to do better.
