clouds of nine

your expectation
of me is no surprise
as you are poetic
worldly wise
I know when you fly by,
the heavens seem to heave a sigh!
how happy one can be
when on one's page
your impressions
one can see…
so I as usual appreciate
ancient culture can’t be forgotten
so very easily
hence do pardon me.

Cata here,
Yes the old places must not be forgotten, but lessons should have been learnt from them.
India ^ cities under the sea, you go to any country and see what has happened in the last 10000 years the sea level has risen at least 150 feet not poetic feet either, you are talking about 8 story's up.
We will never learn, good swear word Venice you can watch it sink if you stand there long enough.
The old people had the right way and that was to build on the top of the hills.
13 Feet up of a sea level has just happened in the States that at this present melt of the polar ice is nothing.
Sub aqua's will swim above the Board walk if it is still there in around 15 years.
London well that goes without saying, England will be a thousand Islands and that wont be salad dressing.
Have sense and invest in Boats and floating houses, have a look at what they are building in Holland because they know that a thumb will not be big enough for the next breach.
Please can I have more praise,
Yours, Cata Strophe

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

none the less
remember we all have cycles
in the human system
and memory
also in the universe
even blind can see ....

the water levels will rise
and the distance
between the surface and the sun will reduce
and the sun's rays will entice
all surface waters
then return the vapours
to from where they belonged ...

the heights of the icebergs
will again be strong ,
the water levels will subside

another generation will have a joy ride
on our faces foolish
they will all say
the guys,
You and I
they mean, ran away.

hahhaaha then
where will you and I be?
besides Saddie
could be!

I can hear Sadie singing an old song"I'll Be Your Sweetheart" and is laughing with your words.
There in another universe is a focal point, as if this world was not small enough.
Loved there is no difference twix you and me, the spirits are all the same size and here we are playing with words, intelligence has nothing to do with things, it is just a tool.
You want to be around here when as I play with words others lose the plot and just nod as if to the village idiot. lol

If I lived amongst idiots would I feel bright.
If I lived among geniuses I would adapt or die.
I wonder where I sit at the table of man..

Yours Ian.T

but the reflection of the moon on water, lives." Kenzan.

My heart beats faster for a while .

is his honest intent

Hope Ian is peeping in
