On Global Warming – A Warning

.

Reaching for the sun,

Stretching higher and higher;

The greatest funeral pyre

Turns, and burns the earth below

Baking, flaking the once-rich soil,

Sucking it beyond the boil,

Searing, tearing, ripping asunder,

Moaning, groaning with voice like thunder,

Cracks, fissures and bottomless pits

Open gaping maws to swallow bites –

Our drying earth,

Our dying earth.

The Teardrop

Post No. 962

The Teardrop

.

Long long ago,

Before time,

When space was an empty place,

Silence reigned.

.

A golden globe,

A shining orb,

Materialised

Like a spinning top.

And the whole world lies

In this single drop –

The key to life.

The Silver Line

The Silver Line

.

There is a silver line

That runs between sea and sky,

Betwixt this world and next.

.

If I could only fly

I’d see the new world wait for me

And when the lightning rends the air

A glimpse of shining gold appears,

A window quickly closed –

The future not exposed.

Sleep Baby Sleep

Sleep Baby Sleep

.

Softest, softest drizzle,

Cool air rocks the cradle,

Sleep, baby, sleep;

Prepare to bear the weight of the world,

The crown of thorns,

Joy and sorrow await your tomorrow.

Suicide of Civilisation

Post No.959

Suicide of Civilisation

.

I wander up hill and down dale

Looking for the street called Straight,

Passing though bogs and sawn down logs –

Signs of progress while nations regress –

Where bare sand erodes in the wind

And deserts overtake the forests;

Cities and towns mushroom at every turn,

Concrete jungles whose heat smothers

The very air we breathe, the air we need,

Until mankind turns on itself

Playing the blame game to the death.

Head vs Heart

Post 958

Head vs Heart 

.

I was the only one

The lonely one 

Living inside my head 

Eyes wide shut 

Blinded by tears 

And nameless fears 

Then I found you in my heart 

And knew I was not alone

You brighten my shadows

And lighten my pain 

You keep me going 

Again and again

My faithful Father

For ever

The Watchers

The Watchers

.

There are eyes in the sky 

As the birds fly

Up and down,  back and forth,

To and fro, 

Many voices calling,

Singing, squawking, 

Talking?

What a fuss

Watching us

Watching them

Causing mayhem!
