Begin
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2010

 

A new era has started
The old one departed
What was once greater
It is no more

The flora and fauna
The floor in my sauna
All flowers around me
Have started to wither

Deadly snakes slither
Through the dry grass
There is nothing now
And we can't go back

We can't start over
See this is the end
I don't understand
I don't comprehend

The moon in the sky
It smiles for me one last time
And the dry leaves wail
A lullaby
