Memory of Climate

Our collective memory
Beyond ideological argument
Embodying Earth's lineage
Her timeless beauty; cool immense liths of life
Glaciers express the fallibility of human time
Changing little but learning much
Whilst generations folly and perish

Yet now jealous animals that we are
We have defaced our monuments
And life ebbs away
Depressions agitated by our conflcited worship of time
In defiance of our God
We assault our memories
Perhaps the remnants of communion
Were too painful for these jealous animals to endure
Without dissolving our of our selves in the waters of amnesia.

(The memory of climate stretching back millenia is carried in Ocean Waters!)
