Poems for the Planet
Elizabeth J. Coleman

"This book, Here: Poems for the Planet, contains many beautiful, generous poems and ideas for action. It is my heartfelt hope that they will inspire readers who ask themselves, 'But what can I do?' to see that there is a way forward – learning to share the earth and its resources, while taking care of it together."—His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Here: Poems for the Planet is a lovesong to a planet in crisis. Summoning a chorus of over 125 diverse poetic voices—including Mary Oliver, Robert Hass, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, Ross Gay, W.S. Merwin, Natalie Diaz, Kimiko Hahn, and others—this anthology approaches the impending environmental crisis with a sense of urgency and hopefulness. Now is the time for this book, as it seeks to galvanize readers, students, teachers, philanthropists, and everyday people to address the realities of climate change head on and become individual catalysts for change. Here looks at the world with a renewed sense of courage, fighting fear that so often leads to indifference and cynicism. The anthology also includes an activist guide, created in tandem with the Union of Concerned Scientists, and an introduction by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. With these poems, we hope you will see with new eyes what the astronauts saw the first time they peered down from space at our tiny world.

"I felt, while reading it, that poetry was working is magic in me again, offering a renewed sense of faith, if not in the future, at least in the mystical power of poetry." —Nin Andrews
