The World Burns…

Noxious intent brews

rampant callous endeavors

toxic news flare up

flames of greed engulf mankind

the world burns, inhales vile ash.

A tanka for Reena’s Exploration Challenge # 164


Endangering Earth…

In response to Brenda’s wordle #418.

Write a prose or a poem using some or all of the words given.

Global warming, rising ocean levels, climate change, water crisis, forest fires are terms that have become common parlance today. What was earlier ignorance is now over powered by man’s greed, in plundering nature’s resources for his benefit. The adverse impact of this reckless behavior is escalating to be a very alarming situation. If man continues to ravage earth’s reserves at this rate, life on this planet is definitely numbered.  The only solution lies in ending our cruelty to nature, help her reinstate her lost glory and leave behind a planet worthy of living for our children.




Isn’t it an irony of life,

avarice and greed

steers some lives,

to amass, accumulate and hoard,

money, money and more money,

in anticipation,

that it will ensure a ticket,

for a lavish life for generations to come,

only to realize

in a single moment,

it is nothing but scrap of paper!

In response to the daily prompt : Anticipation
