Kiss the earth as it dries 

mud cakes and cracks are all that lies,

ashes to ashes 

dust in the wind 

we had our chance to see the light 

to dance in the restorative rain

carelss and free as the floodgates opened 

we drowned in our assurances 

Placated by our insecurities need 

to be lied to and medicated 

without a thought for tomorrow 

what a strange echo to leave as warning 

amongst the cracks and cakes 

drawn by long past tides 

of a forgotten time

in a lost world.

The Fire Next Time

Or any one of a thousand predictions on how we get destroyed by nature or how we do ourselves in. As a sci-fy speculationist, theory seldom equals the outcome. And so we wait and if we should wake and see the rain of reality, a reprieve may be there. Maybe. - slc
