    the world has ended !

    where are you at?

    please write a poem along these lines!
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly

    One Day in Garden Valley

    Hephzibah said this time soon would come
    Uriah, just two, instinctively sucking his thumb
    Rose to catch his streaking kitten "Mitts"
    Rollicking through the debris field, its
    Answer to the upheaval was perpetual motion
    Hephzibah gasped through all the commotion

    For the day had come as it once was foretold
    Outside Garden Valley, the whole earth enrolled
    Raged Armageddon - bells for the innocent tolled

    It took more than an instant, I remember it clear
    Surprised at my lucidness as it would appear
    Rearranged matter, and me, blinked and wrinkled
    About a halcyon memory beyond all time, twinkled
    Eternity!, at last, I now understood - His plan where
    Love conquers all come to fruition: I heard trumpets blare

    Good idea Cacian!

    Lol! Gathering from this Armagedon poem that there is a new kitten "Mitts" in the family.

    The end of the world

    They say the world is ending...
    That nuclear war...
    Global warming...
    The thawing of the Pools...

    They say humans are estranged,
    killing each other for futile reasons
    animals are dying in the heat

    Know what
    I am packing my bags and
    airing my intergalactic wings
    to look for better worlds.

    @Taylor.LoL! I hope sincerely that you never ever will name an innocent cat Hephzibah or
    Uriah(This last remains me of the slippery Uriah Heep in David Copperfield). What gave me the idea of a new kitten was "to catch his streaking kitten "Mitts".

    When violence strikes,
    there are no words,
    even nonsense has its limits.
    there is just the horror of belonging
    to an ever narrowing world.

    lol... Taylor (a she) is a past Poet Laureate of El Dorado county, California (our first!) who leads our Thursday at Two poetry group here on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month. I am but the humble tailor. Uriah Heep: Prolly their best known song - "Easy Living"... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lumulauzCU0

    Your poem speaks so true. Yes, so sad about Salman Rushdie. Freedom of speech comes with a terrible cost in my country ~ be it from our neighbors, government, or others Recent example: https://www.rollingstone.com/tv-movi...-race-1293144/
