As life returns to normal, post-COVID infection, I thought it might be an idea to write some longer form poems for the next 30 days, to get me back into the business of routine. Fortunately, Twitter has provided an event for that: #NaPoWriMo, which is part of #NationalPoetryMonth.

#21 is another ecological poem I was supposed to put together with the other ones and promptly forgot about. The organizational acumen is beginning to slide but don’t worry, I think I can hold it together sufficiently to last the remaining nine days…

Thank you for taking the time to read, and please comment if you like this 😀

In Borrowed Time

Instead of                                            words
bring forth deeds        not yet defined
show a change in                       currency
from greatest minds who will decree
level                          the                           field

whilst guilt                  remains as space
in which that silence                         men
defined as guileless parties        place
indifference             as              emphasis
Earth  which all walk                       upon     

Instead                 bring forth a change
greatest minds                            remains
which silence                                defined

Earth                                      all walk upon


in                      borrowed                    time
