Earth (poetry challenge)

a poem, edited


Slowly, ever so slowly
this mass of earth will ascend,

it’s taken long to get to this -here,
whatever ‘here’ means in terms of transience-

but the plunging pendulum works with such force
for mountains to scatter,
to disperse like flecks of dust.
Twas a big decision in the long run
the story says.
