The precious bones
Lie sleeping in the bowels
Of the earth curled up
pianobar_400In a timeless embrace
Among the sediments
And ancient stones.

I hear their primal screams
echo through time across
Ancestral lands plundered
And dry with tumbleweed
Rolling over desert floors
Abandoned streets
And open doors.

Cities once
Mighty and strong
Fallen into the dust,
Crumpled rusted steel towers
Shining under the hot sun
Covered by the
Of time.

I think about our age,
Our time and shinning cities,
Will they remember us
When we mingle with
The precious bones
In the bowels of the earth
In a timeless embrace
Among the sediments
And ancient stones?
Will they ask
About our stories,
Love, failures
And faded glories?


With a digital drawing from Nikos Laios
