Blinders keep us focused on our “now”
Only living for the moment
We move mindlessly forward
Harm gone unrecognized
Sands creep in
No going back
Once pure is now decrepit
If we could see, could we change it?
Or is it too late to turn back time?
This was written for Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge. This week was an Ekphrastic, that is, we needed to create a poem that explores a piece of art. Anita Dawes, who won last month’s Ekphrastic challenge, chose the image at the top, an image by mollyroselee from Pixabay. I chose to do a double nonet.
OK, not so subtle about our environmental impact ;) But Earth Day is almost here!
