To mark the publication of The Anthropocene Hymnal, I present my reading of ‘Destiny of this earth’ by Gabriela Marie Milton, which is included in the anthology. I hope I have done justice to her profound and beautiful words. Over the next few weeks, I will be featuring many of the poets from the anthology, so you can get to know a bit more about them, and their contributions to the book. I am truly grateful to everyone who contributed or was involved in the project in any way.
This weekend I am on a family holiday so there might be a slight delay in replying to comments, etc.

Thank you Poet paz ✌🏽
A wonderful poem – so refreshing to read a poem that recognizes the earth’s destiny is ours too – a fact so many seem to be slow to grasp. Thanks for sharing the contributors to the anthology with us. Yay!
I don’t know why others can’t grasp this? Perhaps they think they can jet off to Mars when they’re through with this planet? But if they can’t survive on a perfectly habitable planet, I don’t fancy their chances on an inhabitable one!
Love your reading of these soulful and searching poem! Have a splendid holiday, Ingrid. <3
