Slow Dance

My land was carved in a slow dance
Glacier in, glacier out
Wind and rain overlies the slow dance
Smoothing smoothing
The rhythm of climate is our slow dance
Beat heats up, beat cools down
Industry changed the tempo of Earths slow dance
Faster faster, hotter hotter
We all move to the rhythm of this slow dance
Species come and species go
The way it has always been………..

  1. I find the rhythm of these lines, with their repetitions and echoes, enchanting – and of course wholly appropriate for your theme. Such a grand sweeping theme too, but sketched with simple bold brushstrokes. I love it!
    (Would you consider making ‘overlies’ singular and popping an apostrophe in ‘Earths’?)
