Eden to eternity

No archeologist
has the power of Sol
summer soul unrelenting
court of last appeal
refuses a reprieve

the currents cease
the ripples end
the inhabitants flee
if they have the power
unearthed the hunger stones
our ancestors telling us
what we already know

the famine age
begun
beyond
the bed riven with
fissures in a kiln
crafted in greed

a mountain of gold
cannot buy a single drop
of the Loire
abundant to
sparse
endangered to
extinct
Eden to eternity
