Can't Put the Pen Down…

The Next Ice Age

There’s always a chance
it will never stop snowing.
We won’t know till spring.

Do ice ages start
with winters that seem too long?
Did the mammoths know?

One day, at breakfast,
they froze, grass still in their mouths
ice cubes in mid munch. 

Next millennia
we may thaw out from icebergs
toast still in our mouths.

  1. The imagery is fascinating. This sparked a piece for me. I hope you don’t mind…I hope you can forgive where my mind went with it…
    Thank you for the spark.

  3. Clever – and true! I really enjoyed the line, “Did the mammoths know?” Well done!
