Suddenly Silence

Werrg,werrg,click,click. Suddenly it was silent,suddenly it was still.There was nothing left no colour no lakes nor hills.

Nothing stirred, nothing moved not even a wind deferred. The last of the tracks were all that could be seen, no animal no bird.

Why did they come here, what had we done. Had we annoyed them had we of them somehow made fun? There was no future left nothing to come.

What of the people, what of their bones ..nothing nothing no shops, schools or homes. Where were the planet eaters you will not see them here. There is nothing left here for them they have moved to another planet I fear.

You could not know this , for you know not of the curse. There is nothing left here as they have devoured our whole Universe. Every planet, moon and satellite gone and so to the next universe they have moved on.

The planet eaters

They came, the planet eaters, they trundled on and on they came upon them quietly so at first no one noticed anything was wrong.

    Thanks for the sci-fi poem! Important to keep in mind that earth is on a very slender thread — close by cosmic events could definitely change this from a nice place to “was a nice place.”

      YES I am aware of this and and the plant eaters could easily be us …. we do not look after our planet and God help any other planet we or our descendants may light upon.

    You write of something I think mankind is currently (sadly) choosing to ignore. Well done!
