Seeds III ~ A Trilogy

 

The seeds had fallen from the sky
and the tendrils shot up strongly and strangely
compelling in their aberrancy
as they hung like windchimes moving delicately
like they were tasting the wind
The panic, never far away, overwhelmed
and fire and bullets and chemicals
were all brought out in profusion
and the protesters made vegetative signs and claimed cruelty
and the governments all issued carefully controlled press releases advising calm
as they packed and flew to supposedly secure locations
while the tendrils grew sturdier and progressed across the streets and plains and cities
appearing with every eyeblink in new places
deserts, ice flows, salty oceans
all overgrown
all unchecked by any tool or scheme or entreaty of humankind
until the globe was covered
and silent
except for the chuckling whisper of wind in the vines…

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
