They know their end is imminent

Even as they come into existence

Temporary Himalayas

Chased relentlessly by time

Until they run into the ultimate obstacle

Humbled down into a carpet of millions of tingling, sparkling souls


for their reincarnation

(from the poetry collection Poems for a Planet Running Out of Time)
