September 10, 2017, Prescott-
I called my mother, to wish her a Happy Birthday.
She, to whom I was made to listen, for the first part of my life,
can now barely hear me, even when I am in full voice.
I pray her life will go on, for quite a few years yet,
and I will rely on the written word, to stay in contact.
The beaches of the Leeward Islands,
and the Florida Keys,
have taken quite a beating.
The emerging forests of Greenland,
just now rising from the Ice Cap,
before they can even reproduce.
Disney World is closed,
and the lakes of The Villages
The Mediterranean, meanwhile,
is a lake surrounded by fire.
It’s being said that the Feds
are probing the ionosphere,
and that this may aggravate
by pushing air currents
down into the stratosphere.
Meanwhile, we still
have relatively scant knowledge,
of our ocean depths.
These things cross my consciousness,
as I ponder whether
to go back outside,
and clear more weeds.
