Daily Prompts




Is it not enough

That my sphere is your home?

I cannot see my future because

Your towering skyscrapers block

My line of sight.

The air that I breathe

Once pure, now black

Sting my eyes.

If you wonder why the seas are rising,

It is because I have wept

Copious salty tears.

I am an old child of the sun

And I have much life left in me-yet

I can feel my pulse quicken.
