Kilauea Volcano in the Hawaiian Islands (© AleSocci)

The scene of Kilauea

truly amazes me,

looks so beautiful

nature is so powerful,

yet in other ways

I looks like a gateway to hell

is this a prognostication

of the future yet to come

is this natures reaction

to all that we have done

or the price we have to pay

for wars and testing of bombs

and the fracking of the earth

are we getting what we deserve

is this a warning is the tide turning

that unless we change our ways

extinction maybe not so far away.

I don’t postulate being a soothesayer

that’s not my proclivity

I am just asking and questioning

because there are reasons for everything

it’s probably just natures order

that keeps repeatedly happening

but as awful as it is

it’s still awesome and amazing

to see nature blazing

in it’s forceful powerful mode.

  1. The planet will be here, we’ll be long gone. Just another failed mutation,  just another closed end biological mistake. An evolutionary cul-de-sac.

    The planet will shake us off like a bad case of fleas, a surface nuisance.


    Take care of yourself and take care of somebody else.
