You move the clouds along
Through the freedom of your
Limitless skies and create
Soft pictures which a
Wanderer’s eye admires.
Sometimes your tunes echo
Through these lonely hills
And they make me long
For arms around me.
You kiss the earth and him
Alike, singing the lover’s song
And sometimes you stroke his
Hair and make him think of me.
Yet, dear wind, I haven’t seen you.
For Aakanksha. 🙂

I am the insignificant
pebble in the large
river that flows southward.
I, go with the flow.
He, is the rock.
He has a thousand pebbles
like me, stuck around
him. He touches em all.
Yet, i am the one he

Let me tell you how it all started.
From about 2130 global warming had really set in and melted both ice caps which in turn caused vast flooding with hundreds of small islands being lost to the sea. Major towns and cities on the continents were rendered useless and left to the elements, which meant millions of people had to be accommodated else where. The people who could be and were lucky enough to be saved were moved to other countries or to high ground and tried to settle down but this caused trouble.
There were so many in the world and with so little land to grow food people starved to death and fought over what food there was. The governments brought in strict rationing but still millions died, this seemed to be alright with the governments as it meant there was more food to go round for the living.
But this was only the start. Earths resources where running out very quickly and countries moved to secure oil and gas for themselves leaving other countries with nothing. Wars broke out all over the globe which got so bad, out right nuclear war started between every nation, tens of millions of people were killed and countries totally destroyed and the vegetation in those countries was virtually nonexistent.
People had to shelter from the nuclear fallout underground in caves or by any means they could find. About three years after the wars ended, it started, and earth delivered its wrath on mankind. Earth-quacks, volcanoes erupting, earths crust faults opening up, tsunami’s two hundred foot high.
This was nearly the end of mankind, only the strong survived and they were very few. By what means, no-one knows, but our ancestors started over again and built domes for the humans to live in expanding each over the centuries. Water is collected inside from condensation running down the glass walls and roof and all waste water is recycled, electricity for light and heat is generated from solar panels outside.
They banned religion, governments, money and all weapons as these were seen as the four things that started all wars, also the domes are run by a committee of elders. Over the centuries they have been able to contact and set up a chain of domes or underground shelters all over the world run on a similar bases.
Population was controlled, when a person reached 70 or could not work any longer they would be terminated, which meant a child could be born. Children were put into a separate dome and they never knew their parents and they never knew their children, which meant termination meant nothing to any-one.
Now to-day we are able to have twenty babies born every year as we are expanding and need workers because we can see signs of earth starting to come back to life with small bits of grass and shoots appearing, we can also see small animals but no-one kills them as we want them to breed.
My job as a hunter takes me far and wide to try to find anything from the past but some of the things we bring back, no-one knows what they are for. We have found a few books, but only a few can can read, maybe some day everyone will learn.
And maybe the earth will come back to full bloom again, the air and water will be clean, animal life might start again all over the planet and we can all live outside where we are meant to be.
To-day three of us are setting of to buildings discovered five years ago but never investigated because they could see lights flashing. Does it mean people live there or is there a power source we don’t know about.
We will all carry on as we are, living for the future for the children and let the planet repair its self through time, for us.

I remember when you first saw me
as you walked through the garden.
My fragrance and beauty attracted you
soothed your soul.
You visited me everyday and spent hours just watching me
you put me on a pedestal and worshipped me
you loved me so much.
Then I gave you the infamous rose coloured glasses
the ones that made you think that the world is pretty
that made you think that you can see better
you loved me so much.
Then you tried to hold me
and I spat words that pierced your heart like thorns
I hit your soul.
And I lived with the guilt.
I had loved you too.
I wished I would wither and die.
You chose to walk off me.
You didn’t bother to say goodbye.
I didn’t die.
I became more beautiful.
You passed the garden again and saw me
the aroma of nostalgia filled the air
you took off the glasses and left them at my feet
as you walked away, you heard footsteps.
You turned around
saw a boy admiring me.
He loved me so much.
