End of Days – A Quote and Bonus Poem Challenge – Day 1

“it starts with an earthquake”, growing pains
a mournful moan from within—Earth contracts
as a mother bearing a child in travail
a new matrix is born to wipe away the old

this dust that we were—never reasoned
that all are one—if made from Earth
Earth we are—yet we pillaged and pained in greed—
never conceiving the defiling of our own flesh

“world serves its own needs—listen to your heart bleed!”
for far too late is the hour to stop the letting
our mother can no longer bear her poisoned limbs—
“it’s the end of the world as we know it—and I feel fine!”

Thanks Nathalie for thinking of me and the nomination for this challenge! It is my hope and anyone reading this will go check out Nat over at Arwenaragornstar!! You will not be disappointed!

I have no specific nominees for this challenge; rather, I wish to present this as an open challenge for everyone reading this! I urge you to challenge yourself and spread this to others!

The rules for this challenge are:

  1. Each day for three consecutive days post a quote (any quote – you can even come up with your own) and a poem to accompany it.
  2. On each day nominate 3 bloggers for the challenge.
  3. Don’t forget to thank the blogger who nominated you
