Snow Globe

I’ve been very quiet again recently on the blogging front, apologies! I hope to find a bit more time to get creative very soon.

In the meantime, in honour of the wintry “snowmaggedon” hitting the UK, I think it’s the perfect time to repost “Snow Globe” for Throwback Thursday! Enjoy 🙂

In Emma World

The very first flake falls; a calm descends upon the world,

With baited breath, expectant eyes await beauty unfurled,

Monstrous

I see you.

Trembling with volcanic fury,

Raging infernos behind your crimson eyes,

Acrid smoke pouring from each orifice,

Face contorted in fiery loathing,

Devastating eruption of hate and bile.

I hear you.

Spitting poison from your acid tongue,

Corrosive words eroding my heart

In a screaming miasmic language,

Vicious pernicious banshee shrieks,

Virulent venom spawning toxic taunts.

I see you. And I see me.

My reflection in your nasty expression,

My voice spewing spite from your lips,

My partner, my trigger, my mirror,

Monster of my creation;

Maybe better off

Without me.

Connected – Triple Tanka

 

Through our soft-lit screens

We enter a cyber world

Detached and lifeless,

In our incessant search for

Constant connectivity.

 

There is no escape

From the merciless clutches

Of technology;

We become mindless robots

Devoid of love and friendship.

 

These connections forged

With clicks and wires and networks

Cannot sustain us;

Happiness is only found

When we talk, touch, listen, live.
