Crimson skies report a threat,
nature will collect all debts.
Smokey clouds appear upset,
warnings came but reached neglect.

Everyone could have done more,
but instead chose to ignore.
If they knew what was in store,
would they listen to their core?

Now the future stands in place,
regrets and shame interlace,
Conservation soon embraced,
so mistakes can be erased.

Present times form future news,
try hard to preserve bright views.
Can we refrain from abuse,
learn to live without misuse?

Response to Sadje’s picture prompt on What Do You See # 178 March 20, 2023


Mesmerize with every beat,
music moves down naked feet,
rises up to then repeat,
bellydance feels so complete.

Sway hips smoothly, side to side,
expose thoughts kept deep inside.
Pretty veils, expressive eyes,
feeling free, no need to hide.

Thrilling sparks flow through snake arms,
revealing distinctive charm.
Hypnotize to then disarm,
silently without alarm.

Shimmy fast, then lift and drop.
Chest circles and belly pops.
Always dance, no need to stop.
keep all joys listed on top.

Feathered Friend

Red cardinal,
spiritual sign.
simply divine.

Sorrows arise,
then disappear.
All sadness dies,
when you fly near.

Symbol of hope,
peace, and good luck.
Infinite scope,
no longer stuck.

Red cardinal,
love messenger.
heartfelt singer.

Fierce atitude,
intentions heard.
Great gratitude ,
for this sweet bird.

Sent from above,
blissful and bright.
A gift of love,
brings pure delight.
