somewhere north of north

Earth Worship

boundless plains of ice

baked under a relentless sun

water turns to water until the ice is gone.


glaciers roll over in aqua blue

ever striving for a cobalt heart

and turn the sea a frothy whitened hue


species scramble toward the new normal

and the cosmic drama unfolds

in a landscape bereft of witnesses.


in the war between fire and ice

the sun moves on the arctic

taking no prisoners.

awww thanks stella!!! yes,

awww thanks stella!!! yes, the witnesses are we humans who happen to live nowhere near the arctic.  most people are completely unaware of our effects there.  i thought you might like this one, i've noticed we share a lot of common causes.
