THE COMING STORM

As you close your eyes,
Let your mind become as deep and clear as a mountain pool,
Ignore for now, the latent rolling thunder in your consciousness,
Feel the gentle breeze upon your skin, reviving, cool,
Imagine a peaceful woodland glade,
In all it’s perfection, by nature made,
The chuckling of a gentle stream,
Wending it’s way down through pastures green,
Listen…Can you hear her?
Can you feel her begin to stir?
Gaia….Mother Earth herself…She breaths!
Call forth the thunder….Unleash the storm!
Feel now, the oceans and seas, how they heave,
The tempest seethes,
The heavens open and the rain pours,
Orchestrate the lightning, bring the wind that roars,
And now that you have the fate of mankind in your hand,
DEMAND…..
Of man that he should pause…..
For he stands at the threshold of the door,
That once opened will bring upon mankind,
All the Gods’ imagined wrath and more,
Make him believe,
The time has come to see some sense,
And offer our Mother some recompense!

Hi, andrew149,
Gaia, lovely Gaia! Certainly, we have to admire and respect that which defends itself! "When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?" Well, "they" be "us"! Though students of history we be, the lessons of others appear to be easier to learn than our own.

the ending...something about a comeuppance...maybe. i was just watching a fascinating show about volcanos last night, and how gaia is ready to blow, any day...i'll bring the marshmellows. lovely write, andrew...it made me pause, if only for a moment.

nice poem andrew
We,the masses, need to take action soon and not just accept whats thrown at us or sit there and complain. You should see the Holes we are digging for resourses in western australia. Pathetic.

Rather wonderful. I am really glad you wrote God's 'imagined' wrath. We will change, we have to.
