Silentium Dei, Centuries

the first lights came alive
a season awakens in its dawn
the younger days of me
and you and the rest of us
as the tiny dews sparkled
grand rich golden diamonds
rays of rainbow from tiny tips
of the tallest grasses among the
fields and the generous rays
flooded the carpets of maroon
grasses discolored such
as in dreams of tomorrow
when we will wake up
for a century of wiseness
of borderless humanscapes
and eternal liberty

the first ships reached orion
humans left earth ages ago
leaving behind dreams of years
and days of carefree
we dared not to defend
the dying earth and failing waters
and winds and fields and rain
the stillborn baby's empty words
just like the dead corpses
strewn along the beaches and rivers
and fading memories of trees
mountains and valleys abandoned
like schools of death after
the great wars and centuries of
atomic visions clouding the
pristine eyes and crimson minds

God Bless Us All.

A poem from you after a long time. And what a comeback! I love this...

So GP do you think
that is Earth's fate

Aah, but is it because of careless and 'preventable' human activity - or is it because as most string theorists and skeptics would have us believe, simply earth's fate cosmological time

There use to be a science fiction theory that 'intelligent life' had indeed existed on the other planets in the solar system. and simply went planet hoping, as the planets became uninhabitable and/or life unsustainable - until some remainder arrived on earth

and then there will come a time when we must go from earth to another planet.

The only flaw of course, is that a civilization sufficiently advanced to travel from planet to planet, would not have devolved back to life on earth say 5,000 or 10,000 or even 30,000 years ago -
and even if they encountered lower lifeforms - and could not enslave them like say in "StarGate" - thrir technological advances and knowledge would hardly fall into decay or disppear, unless of course they were all kileed off by luddites, or ...

no, no matter how dumb
the mob would not kill off a superior race without extracting the knowledge and 'gimmicks' and new technology fascinated ancient people's just as much as they do today's people.

After all someone who could build an electric motor, a wind turbine, a solar panel, a wind-up radion, a mobile phone 10,000 years ago would have been worshipped more than Einstein ...
or burnt at the stake like a witch

[gautami] thanx gautami, it took a while to get my brains back :p

[quasar9] its not the fate or destiny, its the mind of the people who thinks they are bigger than the universe. They tink there is notning more to find, nothing more to live for. The irony of humans lies in the fact that we kill the creator but worship them at the same time. Thanx for the great comment!

[marutham] top 100! oh man! thanx da!

[ponna] thanx da!

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …
