Apocalypse

Apocalypse

A Poem by Aethereal
"

What happens when the sun gets angry?

"

Apocalypse

 

Melting colors fall away.

Blues desert the sky.

Vivid yellows fade to gray.

Blushing reds bleed dry.

 

Bright green hues have gone astray.

Blooms don’t catch our eye.

Everything’s as dull as clay.

All has gone awry.

 

Splendors on the twelfth of May,

rainbows in July

have all fallen to decay.

Seasons petrify.

 

Now, our sun’s a frozen fray,

and we don’t know why.

Light has turned to the X ray.

Assets freeze and fry.

I feel this piece was penned to supply multiple perspectives to the reader(s). I’m West African by heritage, and although it’s been years I spent a lot of time in my country once, residing in the midst of an isolated town affected by draught which led to famine. The primary means of survival for the people was farming, and without a harvest it was virtually impossible back there to sustain a healthy living. The colours of the fields faded. Everything turned brown to grey. To some it felt like the end of the world. That sense of despondence, desolation and decay is just something that occurred to me as I read this poem, even though in yours you refer to an apocalypse. This is brilliant writing filled with brilliant imagery throughout. Very memorable and thought-provoking Thanks for the share!

W.H.

Thanks for your review! My poems are more or less little songs.
Love the imagery in this, though a bit frightening because it could soon be true if we are not careful.

Thanks for your review! We need our 'lil baby star to be those creatures whom we are.
This sounds interesting it could be about communities affected by hurricanes and then the world around them keeps on living as they are conditioned to watch and ignore the pain of others and when is their turn other persons are programmed to listen without emotion.

You do remind me of the eclipse I saw back in 98' when I lived in Italy... but a true Apocalypse, would be nasty within a several thousand years, from here ;) once again you conveyed within the perfect Rhyme, a true scary fact... Glad I'm in my coffin when this is about to happen ;) or maybe not lol... Excellent ;)

Really amazing write here of imaginings but with a really vital message about our place in the universe.
