Afterwards

You can see a young personโ€™s silhouette against a pink sky. You can see a subdued sun in the sky and birds flying in circle.

emerging at last
from an underground cocoon
pale sun still shrouded
yet emerald shoots glisten
birds are calling to the dawn

post-apocalypse
nature is undefeated
what will man do now?

  1. My favorite line is โ€œbirds are calling to the dawnโ€. It reminds me of the small town where I grew up, because you could really hear the birds doing that. Not quite the same in the โ€œbig cityโ€. ๐Ÿค”
