Subject to Change


Our little ecosystem
is subject to seasonal impacts
as we become heated
risk of contamination strong
but feels irreversible
this feeling
this bloated feeling
seems new normal for our environs
in a warmer taxonomy


MONO NO AWARE in the Imaginary Garden

  1. If one listens to the farmers, gardeners, those who live off the land (vs. the ones who only know food via the grocery store) there is climate change - the conversation should always be on humans being good stewards of the earth - so lets focus on that and stop squabbling about climate change. Right? We need to clean up our air and oceans and lands... I think that is something we can all agree upon. "as we become heated"... both our environment and us!

  2. This is enough to make one sad. I remember when winters were brutal and snow piled on snow. But we can do this. We can make things better

  3. Irreversible yes, we humans struggle to fully comprehend the consequences of our actions.

  4. Yes, the feeling of it being too late is growing. We can slow it down, but only with a massive effort which our leaders are utterly uninterested in making. Some people are making a difference, though, which is hopeful. Grass roots change is our best hope now.

  9. There was a time when things got better. When in the service I came to ElPaso where every morning there was a yellow cloud hanging over the entire valley (we lived in the mountain foot hills) coming from the refineries. With new regulations working by time for us to leave five years later there was NO YELLOW FOG.

  11. The signs are all around us that our abuse of the planet is causing the danger of global warming and detructive weather patterns similar to those in the US and just recently in Australia. But still the politicians refuse to consider this the cause. Whenwill we ever learn? I think we will have to write a lot more poems like this!

  12. We have sadly reached the point of irreversible damage. Yet the hand wringing and wrangling continue.

  14. It's all about cease to burn the fossil carbon... actually quite simple, the new normal is here, what we should fear is the next normal.
