Endangered Species – Where is Their Voice?

When we look to a world where goodbye is the theme — the world of other species of plants and animals — we must feel the pain of loss.
Someday we too will not be on this planet.
I just found out I was a finalist in the Jane Goodall Foundation Competition for a short play about Endangered Species. It is a play I wrote with a former friend of mine. So glad she submitted it. I
am remembering a small piece I saw years ago that was a farewell to
endangered species, done with great love by a beautiful native american woman. We all learn to say goodbye in our own ways. Mine
reflects the tears and choices that have limited the earth.
We cannot know how the last penguin will feel or the last bengal tiger. Will the final resident of their kind be looking around and wondering where the others went? will we?

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
