    Time

    I can hear the whispers of the trees, fanning their leaves, beckoning me to listen to their concerns.
    Mother earth is in pain they say,
    the soil smells of death, and the nutrients have depleted from the grains of sand that find its place in my hair
    Is this a dream, or is it just pieces of shattered images that have found themselves in my head, to overshadow my mind.
    There is nothing but ash, and burnt incense of what was once our planet.
    I can't breathe because of  the dust of the fallen
    I can't see because of the mist of pollution
    As seconds fleet, I wish I save those who wish to be saved
    Those who wish to be healed
    Those who wish to be heard
    I am no mercenary, nor am I a morter
    I am only time.
    Tick.... Tick.....Tick,,,,,,

    Well written allegory, and a valid warning. Let's up enough people get the message before it's too late.

    A good story that we all can relate to, as they say Time is the great healer and poor mother earth has to see and wait so long for healing. love it--rich

    intense and true message that too few will hear but everyone should listen too.....

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
