We don't only make our own Lord sad, but we have given Olympus a cause for tears, man has become its own self destructive tsunami...

…you can be a god, a mighty one,
full of tsunami rages, giving fright
to in need many a poor fisherman
casting his net in an empty invite…

…distant the thunder comes near,
the gods of war are coming to fight,
they don’t use soldiers made of tin,
but the sons that came from man…

…gods abandoned their Olympus
as looking down they saw how bad
the human spirit has tried to climb
a Babel Tower made of quick sand…

…rows after rows of white stones,
with fading names into the past,
one day that pile of so many bones
will let us to reach the skies…

…and doing so we raise on tiptoes
with a kerchief hold in our hand,
so we can reach Poseidon's face
and his salty tears of pain can dry.

self-destructing societies seems to be the topic today. Had to click on this one after reading so much ancient history for my novel. Good choice of images: who but the men of the B.C. would have known destruction so well as you point out. Who but the "Children of Poseidon" in the fabled Atlantis would have witnessed it. A good poem and a good idea...
good writing, Michael

You are standing on the summit of tower of Babel my friend, and have united all understanding in the human heart, surpassing dialects at the summit. You have wiped Poseidon's tears. Bless you! Jasmin Horst

Good Morning George,
I have wondered about our planet being a huge grave yard with all the centuries that have past. Your words are of spiritual pursuits & I enjoyed as always your wisdoms of your poetic pen!
Your words are very true, We are our own self destruction through many facets of the word as in envy, hate, greed all the heartless theft of love & kindness & generosity & more important acceptance of our differences & perceptions of all things.
Have A Lovely Day
& No Bones About It You Are A Masterful Poet!!

How so sadly true, brother. And these sad days, I now often wonder if this has been mankind's pre-ordained destiny, or if we could have traveled a much brighter, and a much better, path.
