The earth weeps tears

to fill an ocean.


As oceans fill with waste,

no one takes notice.


As icebergs melt and crumble,

no one stops to listen.


But once a deadly virus appears,

the world wakes in an uproar.


The danger has hit home.



The sky glows red

with anger.

It shrieks thunder.

It rains tears.

Lightning sizzles

across its angry face.




The sky is still in command.

It shows its wrath.

Then it grows calm

and releases the blue skies.


Welcome the night
And its good friend, the moon.
Do not take flight
From the man in the moon.

Let the moon take over

From the sun’s bright reign.
Let the sun take cover
Without severe pain.

A thick blanket will fall,

Giving the earth security.
Darkness will cover all
With its fine grace and purity.

For the sun, no need to pine.

Don’t waste precious time mourning.

The stars will twinkle and shine.

The sun will rise come morning.


An Island Escape

The world is changing.

Forests are dying.

Animals are becoming extinct.

Nature has taken control.


Days are warmer.

Rain falls harder.

Earthquakes rock the planet.

Hurricanes bring the winds.


Ocean waves dance to the deadly tune.

Bow to our new foe, Mother Nature.

Crime does its share,

But nature cleans the slate.


Towns and cities topple

Beneath the rubble.

The salt water hits my face

As I watch the waves rise.


I wait for the beautiful sight

To turn deadly and reckless.

The laps at the shore

Become heavy slaps.


Rocks and debris are

Thrown into the wind.

Soon I am drenched.

The ocean has come ashore


To wreck havoc on our lives.

My eyes tear as I search for

the ocean’s lost beauty.

I search for my old friend.


My old friend who’d soothed my fears.

My friend is long gone.

All is gone.

And so will we.
