Three Haikus for Nature
Sun, clouds, drought and flood
Change in a billion strange ways
As carbon traps heat
Wind in tight circles
Spins the sinister raindrops
Into shards of ice
Ripping roofs, mud slides
Violent nature speaks loud
In fury at us
Opher – 9.9.2021
I wrote these to be read together.
We are at the start of an epoch of change. Our activities have altered the planet. Ironically the future is not looking conducive for human beings.
Climate change is not only bad for us; it is also bad for many other species.
Our greed and stupidity is looking to become our downfall.
It is as if we are beginning to experience nature’s fury directed at us – storms, floods, heatwaves, hurricanes and droughts. We are reaping the rewards for our actions.
Too many people! Too much greed! Too much damage!! Too little time to put it right!!
We’re creating the future.
