Science News


I write in quiet, almost

in secret, based

on a news story about

our arctic ice


we have less of it now

because the Earth

is warmed


in response,

there will be cloud cover

widening to blanket

all our works and



which will then be

colder, the frigid air

of a new ice age

that, in

fact, we will

have ushered  in


front seats to

a winter’s theatre;


is nature vengeful, we

might ask—and

we may not live

to know,


which is why I like to

keep it silent,

as it really shouldn’t

know our


plans consorting newly


the cosmos;


nature there and


am certain they send

messages to

each other,


while we float on


inside the heavens
