Poetry – Global Change

Global Change


The wettest February followed by the sunniest May

As the Indian Ocean fuels the jet stream.

We’re going too slowly, with feet of clay;

We’re moving as if in a dream.


The bleaching of the coral reef.

The clearance of the forest tree.

Defies the psychology of disbelief

As levels of carbon rise upon the breeze.


The rising of the oceans,

The changing patterns of weather

Should focus all our notions.

We need to act all together!
