Can you hear it …

A quiet whisper, a breeze from the high mountains.
Brings the scent of pine; spruce and Diesel, a breath from the Earth’s top that crumbles.
A lonely roll, a gentle touch from the last gasp of the sea.
Brings the scent of salt, water and decay, a breath from the blue mirror of the ocean.
A spasmodCan you hear it …ic vortex, a faint memory of the deep jungle.
Brings memories of everything, of all the existences that filled the Earth with life.
A burning wind, created by the hell we imposed on Earth in our assimilation.
Brings with the last sad message, one last thank you from all those who tormented for an extra dollar.

Can you hear it, it’s like Earth sounded as the crackle of fire consuming our home.
Brings in a blackened and collapsed world to replace us.
Can you hear it, an almost inaudible change in the sound of our voices.
Brings the silent prayer from the few who try to drown out the many.
Can you hear the soft whisper of the Earth’s lungs singing for the last time?
Brings the sound of silence over all of us and soon sings a completely different song.

About jachso

Hey Destiny Poets. I live in Denmark about 90 km from Copenhagen and works in Roskilde as a teacher and mentor. I'm probably not like most men of my age and yes I am aged 50 years old. I've tried a lot of jobs without finding what I'm passionate about. Writing, I have always loved and I was probably just 14 years old when I produced my first poem. I have not yet been released some of my poems, but I hope it happens one day. I just finished a novel which I would like to have published, now the time and talent show whether I have the ability to write. Poetry has a special meaning for me and this is where I really feel at home. My life has sometimes been marked by many losses. In the mid eighties, I lost my fiance at the time when the accident happened was pregnant. She lost control of the car and drove herself and her child, who was on his way thereby, to death. It has really made its mark on my life and way of thinking. In the late nineties, I had problems with my back and had to seek other avenues to support myself. I finally decided to enroll at university and was admitted to the humanist line. I read philosophy, science, psychology, journalism and history, but philosophy and psychology is my major interest. I thrive today in the RUC aka Roskilde University just 25 km from Copenhagen. My job is to guide and teach, and it is a job with speed and that gives me a lot again. I have two collections of poems ready to be released, if I can find a publisher who will publish them. I have no children, it would obviously be my lot in life although I have tried, but luck never smiled at me that way. If you have any questions for me so I hope you just ask away all you want, I'll respond as soon as I have read the questions. With kindest regards from Jan Sorensen

    A sad song sung true about the unravelling of our planet and it’s atmosphere due to the excessive greed of those who control and profit from the capitalist neo liberal economy .
