Reality Show

Rock gods are watching,
sitting around the circus,
impassive, solemn.

Quiet, immobile,
sealed giants, imperious
guardians of Earth,

and ambers. Daunting
frontier, packed, cracked crust, joining
dusty ground and light

shadows. Airy veils
brushing softly on alpine
tops, filtering rays,

casting bright, floating
moods – shifting faces, ever
moving roof. Cotton

decor – grey and white –
vaporous liquid moving,
at wind speed, selects,

aims – Γ΄ blessed presence!
quenching thirst, or cursed absence,
dry spell, sucking life.

Blotched abundance
winces floods, cooks droughts, disturbs
balance, sparks or wastes

at random. Fragile
equilibrium threatened
by careless, lustful

winds, flirting, flying
air-bound forces, unleashing
storms and hurricanes.

Soulless lust, bridging
states, wildly roaming, running
impervious trade.

Mineral forces,
eternal strength unconcerned
by organic feuds,

observe, watch and laugh
heartily as human farce
unfolds, cluelessly.

    Struggling to find the words to even begin to let you know what I truly think of this B! You have managed to write a truly epic piece befitting the topic. The gods you speak of entertain themselves with a chess game of natural forces moving to and fro, yet we as humans don’t even make it onto the table as pawn pieces. What a challenge to take on such a subject, yet you did it with passion and eloquence. Dear heart, you are a writer indeed πŸ’•
