The story unfolding…..

Ode to the Globe Warmed

Temperature rising,
ice melting,
sea level rising,
weather turning wild,
in 2004
the National Geographic
says it all
one degree of change.

What role do humans play?

Glaciers retreating,
ice shelves fracturing,
permafrost melting,
going, going
thin ice in the arctic,
while the seas encroach.

What role do humans play?

More than a
hundred million people
worldwide live within
three feet of
mean sea level
and there is something
about the way the
earth is breathing.

What role do humans play?

Seasons shift
and we stand drying up
in the desert,
dead forests, mistimed migrations,
and no ice cover
losing winter as
we knew it.

What role do humans play?

At some point,
as temperatures rise,
those that can run,
will have no more room
to run.

What role do humans play?
