Frangible Essence By Patricia Marie Budd - February 26, 2018

Frangible Essence

Frangible essence, orb overflowing
With humanity’s burgeoning presence.
Allotment tips, powder keg pulsate brings
Swelling waters bursting calescent.

Ripple waves erosion; giving slightly
Softly caressing cliff height’s sandy shore
Aggressive breakers shatter human psyche;
Travail regardless all who may abhor.

O, humanity’s ally! Occasion
All man. Vouchsafe commitment. Artisan
Logic, desiderata’s nucleus:
Antecedent plenary devotion.

Recognize preservation is no crime.
Offensive forces one must needs defy.
