A Wish For A Puddle

awishforapuddlesmall

A poem, a gift of #poetryport with #clmooc for @karenatsharon is a wish for an awakening of more minds as to our fatal future if the earth continues to warm past the livable habitat for humanity.  Of course, the little creatures in their spores and cysts can just wait for thousands of years after we’ve passed on and they can begin again when the water renews them. I wish to strive to save our puddle– how about you?

A Wish for A Puddle

A walk

as sunbeams split

dark clouds

dropping their last

raindrops

plopping in the

puddle

I stop to ponder.

 

A wonder

of dried earth absorbing

drop after drop

refreshing the dusty

spores

rejuvenating in the

puddle

I pause to imagine.

 

A creature

in dormancy opens

renewed life

stretching their drenched

limbs

swimming in the

puddle

I know will wither.

 

A puddle

as sun rays heat

muddy edges

shrinking their last

life-giving-water

drying away the

puddle

I watch disappear.

 

A reflection

of me watching

dehydrating creatures

rebuilding protective

cysts

drying in the

puddle

I no longer see.

 

A sadness

as sunshine warms

my world

warming our last

breath

no cysts for us in the

puddle

I know as earth.

 

A wish

as we awaken

our world

warning our last

moments

striving to save our

puddle

in the universe.
