Earth, Our Home – AI-generated song sung by Cathy DeWitt.

Pacha and friends needed a song for our musical storytelling adventure. For curiosity’s sake, I took this paragraph from the Earth Charter, called Earth, Our Home to see what we could do with it.

Humanity is part of a vast evolving universe. Earth, our home, is alive with a unique community of life. The forces of nature make existence a demanding and uncertain adventure, but Earth has provided the conditions essential to life’s evolution. The resilience of the community of life and the well-being of humanity depend upon preserving a healthy biosphere with all its ecological systems, a rich variety of plants and animals, fertile soils, pure waters, and clean air. The global environment with its finite resources is a common concern of all peoples. The protection of Earth’s vitality, diversity, and beauty is a sacred trust. – Earth Charter

I put that text into the ChatGPT AI tool and asked it to make a poem. I tweaked the results and got this. It reminded me of Pacha and friends on the Road to a sustainable, just and peaceful future.

Our planet, a part of this grand universe,
Earth, our home, with life so diverse.
Nature makes life a wondrous adventure,
Earth provides essentials to nurture.
The community of life, resilient and strong,
Depends on the biosphere singing along,
Plants and animals, soils fertile and clean,
Water pure and air pristine.
The global environment, a concern shared,
Finite resources, a limit we’ve dared.
Protect Earth’s vitality, diversity, and beauty,
A sacred trust, our collective duty.

My friend Cathy DeWitt then set it to music — complete with a choir of angels! You can hear more of Cathy’s music here.
