Thursday photo prompt: Glimmer #writephoto

This is my entry for Sue Vincent‘s, of The Daily Echo Thursday Photo Prompt. #writephoto

Last Glimmer.

Hope

The one

Last Glimmer

Burned through the dawn

We’d all given up hope

Of reaching the safety

Of civilization

All of our hopes dashed and broken

Fuel on empty the engines cut out

We went down in sight of the city lights.

The aliens had bought the virus here

Unknowingly, they meant us no harm

They taught us how to save our world

To treat Nature with respect

Then came the plague

The cure found too late

For the one last

Glimmer of

Human

Hope.

    This is great, Willow, a whole story in a poem.

    It takes creativity and a good imagination to tell a story in one poem. This is perfect Willow.
