    IMPACT

    In the depth deep-chilled by the darkness
    came a dread rock hurtling thru the night.
    It was wide seven miles and Everest high
    and it wobbled with a turn to the right

    as it twisted like a hula skirt, tumbling thru the universe,
    speeding meteoric like the comets only dare,
    racing thru the cosmos, mega-tons coming close.
    Life on the Earth unattentive, unaware.

    Its weight shifted massive with a movement
    from the pull of our gravitating Sun
    that pulsed a convulsion which added more propulsion
    to this asteroid ablaze and on the run

    as it smashed winds of Neptune, crushed rings of Saturn too
    bounced off of Jupiter to clear the face of Mars,
    pierced thru its red dust, Moon looming up just.
    Earth people eating, loving, talking, driving cars.

    I saw it thru my window ‘cross the night’s sky,
    blazing closer, getting larger like a fear
    and I knew Time was ending to a standstill
    ‘cause the last second’s tick was coming near

    to rid the reign of Mankind, a species tumbling space and time
    creating wonders gushing from its mind’s void black,
    whose history claimed a special brand of fashioned life by cosmic hand
    which once stamped footprints in Time’s sand will echo no more impact.

    Rich – Ah Rich! So very good to hear your enjoyment was awesome. Don’t even ask where this piece came from. Okay, if you absolutely insist. I was eating a pepperoni pizza when this popped into the head.. That reminds me, maybe it was that guy flipping the pizza dough into the air. Poets are strange. So let it be written. So let it be done. Thanks Rich. HH

    P.S. – I know it’s a depressing story. But it was pizza. You know….pepperoni. With cheese no less. C’mon. LOL

    You were! Remember me ? I was the one screaming in the back with the soup stains on my tie. You were the one saying faster, faster. I remember everyone threw their hands up, you too, as we made that last dip of the rollercoaster heading to Earth. It’s a good thing we had round trip tickets for this one way ride. Ha! Ha! Ha! HH

    P.S. – Ahhh what the heck! C’mon, Let’s go again !

    You really know how to paint a picture with your words, HH. I saw the coming doom and felt the gripping dread.

    You're a word-smith, par excellence! :toast:
