Treasure Island

Avalanche


How much warmth one
needs to melt the avalanche?
If anything stands before,
global warming will turn it
into water, the sea-level
will be high enough
to drown the million hearts!
The tsunami will destroy
the fertile land.
Should the avalanche
be melted?

    Yes. Global warming is a great threat and the melting of polar ice - -an avalanche - will certainly make the seas to rise and gobble up the fertile land! A thoughtful poem so creditable! (Report) Reply

    A globial warming crisis is occuring all around us...and in us too.
    The physical crisis will be denied by some as they take there lasp gasp of air before they go under the sea, or are washed away by typhoons and hurricanes or tsumanies. If not that way viciious storms and tornadoes, droughts,
    and floods and rising global temperatures.
    But there is another global warming crisis that is mentally dibilitating the world. Those who believe and those who do not. It will all play out in the end...or should I say it will come avalanching down on us. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
