I am using the daily prompts provided on Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetic Asides blog on writersdigest.com


SILENT PLANET

What could be if we could hear
you now, reminisce with the rocks
of your coldest oceans
memories of formative years,
those tectonic shocks
that shaped you, made you
proud and green, geothermally
chuffed to be spinning
and changing over ages,
all your creatures free
of cages and roaming wild
your wide steppe and savannah
chasing down the sun
settling along river roads
to everywhere under pinpoint
stars and light undiluted.
Will you raise your voice only
when nothing has survived,
to speak of the fortune days

before mankind arrived?
