Apocalypse?

By Johna Ferguson

Ants
on the ground.
Birds
flying around.

Clouds
in the sky,
Sun
up so high.

Daylight
so bright,
Darkness
at night.

Earth
spinning fast,
How long
can it last?

Indeed! I too wonder "How long can it last?"

Enjoyed your poem very much...

Johna - It can probably last only a few million more years, so I'd better start getting my stuff in order!

Nicely written, - Sandy

Won't make any difference. We'll be swallowed up by a black hole in about 300 billion years. :-)
