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 >>>

Empty Planet

Only the elephants remember 

The last dying embers 

Of the human race

Mother Nature has embraced

And reclaimed

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
