Return of the Globules

Return of the Globules

A globule

Of transparency

Reflecting starlight


To the ground

The terra firma

The earth

After which its form

Was developed

By lunar rumblings

Chastising terrestrial currents

A saline solution sloshed about

Shriveling into a desert

Where a pagan deity of war

Drug the bones

Of those who once lived...

And now the globules have returned

Bringing freshness

Floral vibrance

To a country

Dullened in beige and grey
