Daily Prompt: Finite

Photography by Englepip Copyright ©



You come, storming out of the sky and the ocean

Attended by your friends, Jose and Katia,

Devils of destruction

Seeded by the warming oceans.

You raise your tempests against the land

Lifting roofs and flattening houses

Devouring all: your killing fields.

All powerful from the heavens,

Feasting your wrath

On the helpless in your path.


Did you create yourselves?

Or were you spawned from the greed

Of humankind

Predating earth’s resources to extinction

Incapable of recognising

That resources are FINITE and that

Taking more than earth can give will

Strengthen your hand

And lead to their own destruction.
