Global Warming - Poem by Indira Renganathan

Wind bursts, orange fire curtains
Sweeping the land fueled blazes
There, in Arctic and Antartic a disintegrity
Cuts of ice, the size of a small country

Sodden wreckage continues hassling
Disasters continue bothering
Thrashing heat waves and fires
Threshing glacial melts and storms
Inflicting floods and climatic crashes
Massive attacks, why?
Something wrong, something warning
Greviously yes, global warming

Ozone layer depleting
Greenhouse emission repeating
Causes are we; Cautious we be
Circumambulating decay..
Speed of nature..can compete we?
Wish, they infer not 'Mother Earth is sick'
Can morally we curb quick?

    A poem that has a solid narrative, substantial to say.
    For all those that feel 'beauties and butterflies' kind of narrative is fine for the day.
    Thank you poet, after a long time a my kind of poem.

    global warning or warming
    is not an issue,
    the issue is
    are we a part of the process
    or are we the global warming?

    your words are globally a warming warnings
    there is no moral
    a vaccine for that

    it is a beautiful poem, i adore it.
