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.

Interesting and intriguing poem, didn’t completely understand the meaning but really enjoyed trying to work it out. Sue.

I saw and understand the “plunging pendulum” It is terrifying in its power.
For every action a corresponding re-action. Happening now…
I could not understand the last line.
I only saw in my inner vision the terrible chaos of the plunging pendulum and the chaos.
Sit tight, we are in this together
