Will it come to this
the long long loss of bliss
can the dust destroy us so completely
and then the rain come in full mockery
thunder booming lightening strikes
life will be stark no grace will unite
people will fight
values dissolve
as survival will savage us
no will will resolve

will there come a child to awaken with a cry
the deep seeded root of what once was high prize
care consideration compassion respect
look to without
and not just to expect
or shall it be a girl ….. tear tracks ingrained
to walk wistfully amoung us and help
over and over again
will her ceaseless compassion heal all the pain
like Pandora’s fairy will she resolve it again
but would it be worth it
to ones proved selfish
so blinkered and deaf
will they have realised
would they now regret
are her efforts wasted
alone as she cries

I shall help her help others
and who else shall try
and our souls will beat with the energy pumped
swollen will choke us but still we shall on
for there in the corner of rock and dead wood
in a beam from the sun
filtered in soot
a flicker of hope
a glimpse of what’s been
the tiniest of shoots
the start of new green
This time we shall love first
and be loved
in a dream

Artist's Description

Allow me the great Honour of introducing you all to a brand new Bubbler James Cole – a stunning artists of the most exceptional kind!

His piece drowning solitude has inspired me to create poetical prose for thought in the style I had in the beginning and I have striven to write again since … thankfully inspired by such art my own true creativity has returned to me again!

It also reminds me of songs from a local artist; Neil Quinlan
“Outside Badland’s Fantasy” & “the Cloud of Knowing”

Thank you! ♥
