Changes Invariable (III)


Behold, The Mass today lamenting on:
Sweltering Heat, Untimely Rain,
Suffocating Humidity, Ferocious Cyclones,
Diabolical Tsunamis and Dreadful Explosions.
Sweating faces, Swollen Temples,
Weak Pulses, Imbalanced Paces,
Poor Visions, Fatty Livers,
Stony Kidneys, Increased Pressures,
Poor Pancreas, Malignant Cells,
Irregular Menstruation, Premature Births,
Untimely Puberty, Psychological Trauma,
Killer Stress, Emotional Insecurity,
And the list of sins and punishments
Would still be lengthening to eternity…

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;
