  1. That is quite a sobering image that you paint. I must say that the frogs in my garden are still very happy and can croak a chorus louder than my husband’s snoring. Sometimes I wonder if the neighbors will complain. The males sit around the pond croaking and the females hop in from all directions then the mating begins. The garden and nature around us is so beautiful that, like my frogs, I feel isolated from the horrors depicted in your Hailu.

    1. Hello Jane,

      Great to have such company, and a joy to behold love and life. Happy for you.

      It will be what it will be, I reckon. Sorry to sound dark.

      Peace,
      Eric

      Grazing and mating
      Fiery meteor crashes
      The great beasts succumb.

  2. Climate change by itself is cyclical and less threatening. But when helped along by humans as you’ve amply illustrated the ride for all of us in the human and animal kingdoms is as threatening as the boiling frog illustration. It’s interesting that all the religions I’ve come across seem to point to “the end of the age” with its different points of view on how this will happen. I think the ancient sages have it right!

    1. Hello Ian,

      For the sake of our children and grandchildren, let’s hope the sages got it wrong.

      Peace,

      Swings to lowest point
      Is that point fire or worse?
      Emerge again cleansed

  3. It’s in the hands of the rich, the puppet master and the politicians. They have to stop ignoring facts, and stop lining their pockets with wealth that cannot be brought to the netherworld, and look at what their gains have brought upon this planet. Plants, trees and vegetations not only sustain earth but is enough to feed and provide nutrients to human. This should be the direction to move forward.

    1. Hello Windy,

      True. And who elected the politicians? The majority among us.

      Peace,
      Eric

      Distract the lemmings
      Debate frivolous issues
      Meanwhile getting cooked
