It's Better Now

It's not like it was.
Look at the lines we can see
and sense the others
with your hidden ways.
Emptiness calls to us in
the odd growing light
and the shock of cold
green salt waves, life's somnolence.
But it's not like then,
like the beginning,
all flame and noxious gassy
hits, impacts and shards.

  9. I do so love your words Christopher, and you are right - it is better now...but mankind seems intent on messing up this wonderful world of ours - so is it just for now...

    (Second attempt at leaving a comment - server probs apparently - but did notice (while waiting): The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion. Excellent!)
