POEM: Come September
Where have all the typhoons gone?
Where is the lava of the volcanoes?
The earth does not quake again
The lightening strikes no more
In peace, the planet rests
Six centuries it takes
For the dust to settle
And the waterfalls to dry up
Before the first rain starts again
And down below, in the plains
A little green leaf grows
That’s the time it takes to go from peaceful to peaceable.
The picture doesn’t load. 🙁
“From peaceful to peaceable” – I loved that line.
This gives out strong ‘Green Day’ vibes. and not just because of the september reference.
@ Vi: Some trouble with WordPress and/or the picture so I took it off.
@ Sreejith: Am not a big fan. I always thought they were more the ‘boom-crash-bang’ sort? I could be wrong.
Boom-crash-bang? I still enjoy their music. 🙂
@ Vi: Perhaps it was the now-non-existant picture that inspired it?
Me too…love and identify with “from peaceful to peaceable”…
