“make a wish” poem by Roger Evers

make a wish

by Roger Evers, copyright 2020
Earth
has its day,
has its say:
 
8 billion humans
chronically out of balance,
dizzy now from the viral vexation,
wonder what’s next,
what normal is morphing into;
 
please, tell me what you see.
 
*
molecules arrange,
re-arrange in the cosmic stew,
the river flows,
the hawk hunts,
the rain falls,
the tides roll in
and out,
the great cycles unfurl
forward into the mysterious;
 
indifferent evolution at play…
 
* *
4.54 billion years old,
what a tale it tells us all
about survival and inevitable change,
about the vanities and ghosts of the past
and about the inevitable riptides of the future.
 
yes, the earth
has a birthday,
 
has its say,
 
has its way
 
come what may….
* * *
