Remembering Gypsy

Gypsy was our beautiful Cocker Spaniel.

Amazingly spirited as spaniels are known to be.

She was a treasure sent from heaven above.

She died on this day, 6 years ago.

Snatched away too early.

Due to the carelessness of the vet.

The Day Earth Died

Mother Earth heaved from side to side.

And sighed.

And sighed some more.

It was a bad dream.

~ * ~

The whole earth was barren.

Green spots here & there.

The only vegetation which remained.

The remaining plants like embers in an ash heap.

Knowing the light had been put out.

Others struggled valiantly to break out of seed.

Pushing through clods of earth to see  the sunlight.

Few other shrubs & dwarfed trees.

Here & there.

~ * ~

Plastic, pollutants & other solid waste had clogged the pores of the earth.

Till the earth became nothing but a vast landfill.

Choked any growth from beneath & strangled  their growth.

Degraded the waters.

Filthified the airs.

~ * ~

Man.

A species from the past.

Had advanced & become too smart for his own good.

Extracted from Earth all her treasures.

Repaid her with garbage unlimited.

Wet. Dry. Mixed.

The toxified Earth.

~ * ~

Gradually the waste man generated, consumed the species.

Wiped them off the earth.

For good.

~ * ~

Man.

He had polluted the air. He had polluted the water. He had polluted the earth.

A shrieking scream & Earth awoke from her slumber.

To discover, the dream was true.

~ * ~

Earth had finally died.

She had become a ghost.

~ * ~

Sow waste. Reap waste.
