Poetry By: Nixie

I was thinking about evolution, and how sooner or later the earth will begin again or end entirely.

Curiously I look up into the night
At the thousand sequins lie ready to dive
Holding hands earth dare not wither
Swimming tides the oceans quiver
But the dark is silent and waits to plummet
Till catapulting fists into her stomach
Once black as black the background roar
Mountain for teeth her volcano core
The remaining sequins like pins for eyes
Watch as heaven and earth collide
She burn's her fingers, her head and her toes
The dust is black and dancing tornadoes
Smoking silk from hollow ears
She does not cry or wipe her tears
The land soon bleak and vast she yearns
Whispering words as the sun returns
The eyes have gone, at least for now
But quietly we wait, for the sequins to fall down
