Okay, here's a really, really bad poem I wrote, but it's my best so far [Jun. 28th, 2003|05:44 pm]

Writing's more my thing. Hopefully.
I see...
I see the land change and the dinosaurs disappear
I see a new time beginning
I see the ancient forests, rivers and plains
I see these places nurturing new species as they come into being
I see a new kind of animal crossing the bridge into this land
I see them respecting the beauty that gave them life
I see someting coming across the endless sea
I see a strange new animal planting a symbol that the land is now owned
I see the slaughter of the way things used to be
I see the destruction of everything beautiful
I see the land claimed, the forests cut, the animals killed
I see an ocean of symmetrical squares of concrete
I see this ocean growing, pushing back all else
I see mass extinction, more so than before
I see the world dying, crying out for help
And I cry over the bones of the earth

Ah.. a sad story about the timeline of this world, I imagine. Very nice, and very troubling, at the same time. I saw it all in my mind as you described it.

Cool! Yeah, that's what it is. Thanks for reading it.

To me poetry is just an expression of what you're feeling, or seeing, no matter how you decide to "dress it up". You accomplished that in your way.
I hope you will post more as time goes on.
