            a limp hand I hold

as the wind takes your last breath

            the candle flickers

Nature's Demise

Hear the subtle cries
Slow death invades their terrain
Black lake mirrors event

How Fast it Dries

the jaguar's tear
slides off his single whisker
clouds do sigh

three offspring
dragged into the river's teeth
one remains

they both stretch
the moment of sorrow lost
life leaps on

Cracking lifeless limbs.
Casting creepy dark shadows.
Illumined by moon

War is good for greed.
Hatred!  Repugnance.  And death…
It reinstates need.

Bright and intense hues
Breaching through Earths fertile womb

Limbs unwilling to function.
My name is old age.
