Global Warming Sonnet: The Sunday Whirl – Wordle

This week another sonnet,
although this one’s seriously done,
to put inside your bonnet
to protect you from the sun.

Each week The Sunday Whirl invites writers to write a poem or short prose using some or all of the “wordle’s” 12 words. This week it is:

wordle's words

wordle’s words

A Global Warming Sonnet

It matters much to us when there is change,
As in our minds it’s change we can’t control.
A change of heart or in a northern pole –
We like the old, the new is something strange.

For instance, take the fact of heat exchange:
This global warming chills our very soul.
The ultimate expression has a toll:
On ways we live our lives that rearrange

Our values, bound like gold, all must be cast
Aside, and searching answers that revive
Life – like a miner of prized gems which last –
We pray our earth and oceans will survive.

The heat turned on, our muted lives now tossed,
To face the firing lines that must be crossed.

  1. Eventually one day, but not soon, the statesmen will admit that global warming is happening but sadly it will be too late. Day by day we are missing the chance to do something whilst others build up their bank accounts.

Have some fun...
