Embracing oblivion

 

Chrysanthemum clouds, blood stains on the moon

the Sea sighs and stills as Ice-age returns,

a pendulum Sun is engulfed by its bloom

while embers in fire-flakes hypnotically burn.

 

Orbits expand and counter rotate,

tides wrench our cities from land 

awakening has come but come all too late,

we have grown way beyond our command.

Thank you Hazel, Ray and Rachel,

All I know is that we are very small and significantly insignificant, just enjoy the ride folks.

This is right up my alley, David, and reminded me of this...

Truly, I believe our ambitious nature was always out of our command.

Real? Surreal? A joke? Big questions for a Friday evening after a glass or two.

Definitely science fiction Ray,

Your 'Pythonesque' comment really makes me chuckle because that second verse is all a bit Eric Idle.

I hadn't seen it until you mentioned it, but you are absolutely right Ray.

For everyones enjoyment, here he is Mr Eric Idle, doing it right.

this first one is the better of the two,

Sorry but that is genius, and it makes me look like a right arse, which I absolutely love xx, and that is proper comedy folks, never mind poetry!

PS, just to clarify global warming and our destruction of the planet is not science fiction, just this daft poem qualifies for that...xxx

A sort of garish oblivion and a sense of wonderment all with a science fiction flavour, in a way a bit Pythonesque. Excellent read, thanks David.
