Downside Up


Let me make one thing perfectly clear

As crystal as it could possibly be

A single tiny detail among millions

One tiny bubble in an eternal sea


An idea both emboldening and unsettling

We are being watched

There are witnesses to our triumphant failures

We are being scrutinized

As we recklessly push our “Mother” down a sewer hole

We are being found guilty

Guilty of horrific crimes against all creation


So let me bend your tired ear

With stories of how humanity lost its meaning

Tales that will be very hard to hear

For the pristine souls and pure of heart

Imminent demise of our elegant celestial sphere


A gift most certainly from the heavens

From clenched fists of the greedy shall be pried

An inconsolable mother has lost far too much

Her child’s lifeblood spilled while she cried


I present this fact again to the gluttonous, ignorant masses

There are eyes upon us

Carefully surveying the catastrophic damage being done

All of our fabulous disasters tallied

There is always a tipping point in nature, a correction of sorts

We are reaching terminal velocity

The point where Creation must flip things Downside-Up

  1. I could not help but envision the faxes of innocent children being slaughtered in Syria, countries using biological warfare on their own people. Is this any dufferent than the German apocalypse and again we sigh and look
    The other way. Thank you for a thoughtful and moving post about our world.

    • Your Welcome Holly. Sadly there is so much wrong with our world on every level. Humanitarian or Ecological it is all pretty horrific. I do feel, however, that there is still a vast amount of good on this planet and choose to surround myself with those energies, but with a keen eye on the dangers and disasters in waiting. Writing it away is a form of releasing it to the universe for me. Therapy within the creative mind is a powerful remedy.

    • Thank you Morgan. We are sadly front row witnesses to the simultaneous demise of our race and our planet. Irreversible atrocity at every turn. As I said to Holly though, I choose to find the good that remains and wear it like a cloak.
