The manifestation, first signs of global warming
conjured up the memories,
when was it the last time she saw her reflection?
the beguiling aroma of the salty sea air
that once delighted her, now befouled,
cursed by trudging through blue-green algae
Complacent in one’s selfishness
to imagine the planet to live forever…
Now, Mother Nature’s invasive tactics are to regain beauty
by cultivating off of human remains.
How would we ever know?
We would never be here to observe new growth.
Dear friends, as some of you know that our dear Hélène used to do this Prompt and after her sad departure, I have felt that this gap needs to be filled. I have decided to take this challenge up and as a trial, I will post 4 challenges for the next 4 Mondays at 12:00 am PST, every Monday morning. And we shall see where to go from there. I hope that you will respond to your posts.
You can write a post on your blog and create a pingback to link to the original post.
Write an original story, poem or a caption.
You have six days to respond to the Prompt.
I will try to reblog your response on my blog.
There is no limit to words or format but keep it family-friendly.
I will do a round-up next Sunday before the next Prompt is posted.
Please tag your responses with #Whatdoyousee
