The Rising Sea   12 comments

Drown in the rising warm sea.

Temperatures you have never seen.

The mask you wear tells me you find it hard to breathe.

At one time the sky was a joy to be beneath.

We had our fun.

Over to you son.

  1. I just read that climate change will, among many other things, make allergy season even worse. It makes me sick. But in happier news, the ozone layer is healing.


  2. I’d never want to live to see the day when I’d need an oxygen tank strapped to my back permanently. This is beautiful.


    • Some people in Japan already use the mask because of the man made pollutants. Ice caps melting. Even here in Florida the coastal areas could be flooded for our grandchildren unless we do something about it.

  7. This painted a vivid picture. Drowning in the lies perhaps, and hiding behind them. This made me think and explore the possibilities.


  8. Good one
