The Thursday Think Tank # 55 - Inanimate Objects

You, the living
are too engrossed in
seeking the answer
to why you live.

You overlook us,
even though we are
as ancient as
Time itself.

We have given you life
and we live
through your life,
yet we are perceived lifeless.

We have heard
every said syllable
and we have seen
every giant and germ.

If only you had known of us!
We, the witnesses of Time would
have told you of every wonderful
moment in the history of our cosmos.

The Thursday Think Tank #54 - The Beach/Ocean

We were
standing at 
the sea shore,
just the four of us,
unbroken, unsullied 
by the gaze of gaunt eyes,
 mouth taut with feigned sorrow,
 and that face: evil etched in lines.

The sea 
was a reminder
that this togetherness
was just a fleeting moment,
like the rise and fall of a tide.
