Perpetual Motion

IMG_3561(Small)

Cycles of life // ever changing

Water // seasons // life and death

Try as we may //no changes are made

Earth’s genetics determine its fate

A hiccup here // a burp there

New islands form // others wash away

The cycle goes on

Kim from d’Verse asked us to write a Quadrille (exactly 44 words) using the word cycle. There are many ways one could go with this, but I decided to write about cycles that seem to never change.  There are so many cycles that we and the earth go through it seems like perpetual motion to me.

    Life is such but a changing world given space and time. Only the human factor causes it to adapt at different locations!

    • Thanks Amaya! When I recall Mt. St. Helen’s blast. the absorbing of the oil spilled in the gulf and in Alaska, and now the eruptions in Hawaii, I know we hold very little power when it comes to controlling things on this planet!
