Naturally in a Nature mood today...

"Fire Behind the Clouds"


What fire does exist behind the clouds,

Not only there now, but for centuries past,

Something akin to a death shroud,

Over our heads, in the interim are we dead?


Burning off the planets oxygen,

Harder and harder to breath,

The fire burning as it does seethe,

Life as we know it, no longer will exist,

Nature’s wrath turned on man,

After centuries of aerial pollutants, no more bliss…


Nature does herein commit suicide,

This we did to ourselves, killing off Mother Nature slowly,

If we are to be faced with extinction for that of matricide,

We need to learn now, as the results will end our lives,

No more will we be able to see the coming and going of the tides,

No longer will we see anything, as nothing will exist,

Nature giveth and Nature does taketh away,

That herein is the message from this writer, this evening,  this day…
