Roots And Stagnant Water - Poem by noblebandit

Passing phenomenon. Geological times

New landscape with volcanic rock forms

Everywhere it’s puffing and steaming

Harvesting water a hurricane

Hidden crevasses all around

Visibility zero, a total whiteout

Methane gases rise in the atmosphere

Ends the Cretaceous time. 67 million years

Enveloped in an ash cloud

Gas and solid rocks spew out

Freakish creature in the ribbed sand

New kind of theropod. Non-avian

Common ancestor of the first birds

Crash-landed on a mesa from the stars

The missing link, most primitive specimen

Small body, small claws and powerful arms

A raptor with few changes. A herbivore

Evidence of feathers if you explore

~~~~~~~~~

Mangrove swamp. Long-lost environment

Leaves its signature in the sediment

Petroglyphs depict a rich timeline

Where Ghost Estates now lie

Perfectly preserved covered in gold

Further courtyards to his abode

Blue, green, yellow, brown

Dark companion, how did you perform?

Color spectrum fades and melts

10acious creature, a quiet toast

Took all the bones and buried them here

Spectacular nature… Mother Earth
