An Inevitable Death

An Inevitable Death

The sky cries scarlet tears
from bloodied white clouds 
forming across a sun’s fury
as it burns the earth
Its weeping sadly not enough
to douse the flames of disregard 

Neglect cheap
Blinding us to inconceivable perils
now impossible to reverse
An inspired carpet of verdant forest floor
destroyed by the punishing wrath
of an angry creator

Climate Change – A Tanka

Climate Change

Hot and steamy days
Continuing to sizzle
as the solstice nears
The west continues to burn
North freezes and south drowns
