    [post_content] => Why’s the sky blue?
Like a mirrored ocean,
open expanses
of California-blue.

Why does it rain?
The storm lashing on the window,
wind like a ghost,
puddles like oceans.

But the colours are fading:
Blue waning,
clouds sweating,
oceans rising,

Ice melting,
rivers flowing,
storms raging…
STOP!

Meetings agreed,
treaties signed,
hands shook…
Action?

Will you do the deed?
On or off?
Hot or cold?
Live or die?

Animals dying
crops failing,
habitats disappearing,
earth crumbling.

Meetings agreed,
treaties signed,
hands shook…
Progress?
