Life Changing Times

Part Three

Path Toward Tomorrow

Lofty mountain tops,
Your unparalleled vistas
Embody my soul,
And like a lost child come home,
I yearn your peaceful bosom
Within summer woods,
The shy brook trickles along,
Patiently awaits
Soaking rains for renewed strength
To babble to nearby trees
Run sacred river
Run wild and ever be free,
If you could just run
Much faster and far enough
To escape calamity
Below still pictures,
Woeful captions tell the tales
Of fish existed,
Before the factory ships
And pollution took their toll
Prodigious glaciers
Elegant and heart-stirring
To countless tourists,
Including the betrayers
Who neglect global warming
Close your eyes children
And let your mind imagine
Vast thick green forests
Filled with exotic wildlife
Before they were stripped away
Picturesque daydreams
Of velvety green meadows,
Summon memories
Of ticklish barefoot gambols,
And blitheful days of youth
Newspaper headlines,
Earth’s cessation imminent,
Resources bankrupt,
Transgressors in denial,
Money muted and useless
