Empty Planet ‘Fiction In A Flash Challenge’ Week #34 NEW Image Prompt. Join in the fun! #IARTG #ASMSG @pursoot #WritingCommunity
Hi everyone! It’s that time of the week again …fun flash fiction from Suzanne Burke. This week’s theme led me down a poetic path.
Here’s the poem I came up with >>>
Only the elephants remember
The last dying embers
Of the human race
Mother Nature has embraced
Her empty planet, maimed
Tentative, new born
The sun shines on this brave dawn
Clean water, glorious fresh air
Because they remember, the elephants dare
And Life begins again
As this empty planet nature does reclaim
