    dotsThe End of Humanitydots

    Dew stands still
    on the limbs of flowers, tilting down with the density

    The earth sighs and the ocean rolls over
    a gentle wave throws his hand out to say hello

    in the vicinity of a boundary
    width and depth and volume are in motion
    to mark the breath of now
    the shadow of the future

    the trees long for the former years
    when their branches danced in the wind
    with flexibility

    summer sings
    lungs filled with smoke and gas and carbon dioxide
    and her voice comes out like the blues
    the raspy mother midnight song
    deep in time with the drumming of the wind

    and the music ceases
    the tape changes over to
    compact digital

    words adapt to their surroundings
    and talk about gray buildings with summer tans
    that look like radiation poisoning

    notes whisper
    they sound like leaves that lose their color
    and the only one who dances is the girl who still remembers
    or still wears her hair in pigtails
    only to cut it off
    and smear it will gel
    and dye it red
    to purple
    to white
    these are the colors of the season
    and they die because it forgot to rain this year
    fall to quickly for you to catch an image
    with your camera

    it gets cold
    but it waits
    holds it breath
    and it's still

    after awhile there are new days
    walking outside your front door to find a swarm of small flying ants
    and before it can be known the sky gets dark
    clouds move in
    they hover over you like a cat arching his back for prey
    they suggest doom and people remember

    fear spreads

    fathers collect blood
    there are
    they have wives, sometimes three or four
    they have children
    from 16
    to twelve

    blood flows for all the people
    someone begs the question
    why not me?
    and why?

    we all watch someone die
    they die from

    they all die from
    their own fear
    have you noticed the symptoms?

    Sometimes they smile a lot and dance and sing
    but this kind of joy seldom touches their eyes
    not today
    Sometimes they pray
    Sometimes they buy airplanes
    and start a fortune

    Great men watch
    They all just say I love you
    and they walk until their legs aren't willing
    they don't cry me
    but they don't let go of me either

    But still
    she drops an apple on the bed
    and they tilt a little

    A drop falls from the sky
    and in a pond there are small ripples

      Each action has a reaction, and nature suffers from the uncaring attitudes of many. You definitely put a great deal of thought and effort into this piece and I appreciate your work! Sharon
