Comes a Time – #writephoto


Comes a Time

Comes a Time

Hate spews

from rhetoric


Disease spreads on
the thin ice of prevention
eager to feed on
the waiting pool

Oceans rise
Deserts dry

hold up their bowls as
the markets plunge

We stave off these threats
try to reverse them
for those we cherish

But do we seal them in
a stone fortress
a virtual crypt
their fate sealed
before it’s delivered?

Comes a time when

it is our children’s world

I’ve used the photo provided by Sue Vincent (Daily Echo) for her Thursday Photo Prompt – Crypt – #writephoto as a metaphor.
