A Hidden Trace

Beneath the pristine peaks and snow-capped mounds, Lie records of our past and future selves.   A precious commodity lying dormant, Safe from prying eyes and probing minds.   Locked up in overlapping, concentric circles Of mutually enticing atmospheric destruction.   As we carefully peel away the surging layers, These …

Records of our Future Past

Across the dusty plains of southwest lands, An empty dish lies buried in the sands; With taps turned off to nature’s moist supply, As climates change the basin starts to dry.   Within the hellish bowels of holy caves, Lie imprints of misplaced and ancient waves; Our excavated past can …

Going North for the Winter

I feel the powder beneath my feet; A sickening howl to the south, But I know that I am safe And so I dance with joy. Until my heart stops, As I see that I have run Out of Snow This is a nonet, inspired by research done at the University …
