A pen of our world as I see it...

A Desert in the Making








I stand afar and watch the meltdown
Throughout these cities and towns
Without a sound
Upon my face - a frown

 The lava flow
Spreading its coal
Knows where to go
Not high - but low

 I listen to the murmur
Of this concrete infrastructure
Dissolving to naught in the temperature
A geo-thermal fire as it swelters

 Leaving behind its perspiration
Continuing its path of destruction
Stripping all to its foundation
And then as if in elation

 Evaporates
Re-fabricates
All it touches as it mates
Its hunger it seeks to satiate

At last I see this entity
Meet water - become humidity
To pour its heat into infinity
Once again achieve validity

 I slowly turn and walk away
As my world sizzles in decay

A sobering account of what could easily come to pass if we do not "mend our ways." Thank you. Love and peace to you,

Regis
