“Perfect Balance” Surreal Art Photography by Luisa Azevedo

sea levels rising
land animals move over
elk in my garden

driven to drink

coffee or tea, they couldn’t agree.

hope against hope

obdurate nature
follows the rules of physics
there are reasons for what happens around us
and to us
no magic
although plenty of mystery
no fate
although plenty of predictability
no predestination
although plenty of  consequences

we hope
we pray
we rationalize
the sun comes up and goes down
time flows
who knows what may happen
surely we’ll be spared
it can’t happen here
it can’t happen to us
history is entertainment

for Weekend Writing Prompt


obdurate nature
follows the rules of physics
we rely on hope
