Guilty memories

Do you remember those days when we danced with joy. Since the happening, we shelter where we can. And pray that we are not trapped under rubble, or worse maimed like father was in the commercial war. At least that battle was localised and against international companies.

Now the whole world battles for survival. Earth quakes and tsunamis came first, then volcanos started erupting. Yes drilling for shale gas led to a massive magma chamber rupturing. Cascading explosions travelled around the world. No continent was spared. Armageddon has arrived. The age of man may be over.

Footnote: Sorry my muse was effected by issues in my locality…

    Who knew about the supervolcano under Lancashire?

      🙂 … unfortunately friends and family live only a couple of miles from the drilling site. It is not good. Then again it is only a brief moment in time since the last tremor shook the Craven Fault

    Dear Michael,

    I do believe humans are ushering in Armageddon…and we are all the losers.

    Shalom,

      Thank you Rochelle for always taking the time to comment. I do like to think that Armageddon is not inevitable

    A very good write that speaks so very deeply of our world situation. It is sad to see the state to which we’ve fallen and continue to fall. Great writing this week, Michael. ~ Shalom, Bear

      Thank you for commenting Bear, I find it very sad to see the destructive human nature that devours our beautiful planet. However I still have hope that some form of natural balance can occur between humanity and nature.

    A bleak outlook. How many more tremors before they finally give up on this fracking nonsense?

    1. Michael Humphris

      So pleased to read your feedback Iain. I understand that there is now to be an investigation into the tremors at the Blackpool fracking site. Perhaps common sense will finally arrive.

    Not a good outlook on what is to come! Hope this is just fiction! Nice!

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you Nan, definitely fiction

    Unbridled greed has made this earth an empty shell. No wonder we are facing so many natural calamities.

    1. Michael Humphris

      Unbridled greed is very destructive, but I like to think there will come a time when humanity starts to undo the damage

    They built a reservoir in the area near here and how there are mild earthquakes. All this drilling isn’t good. They could be drilling into trouble. I don’t even want to know what could happen but these companies need to be more careful. A good story and well written, Michael. —- Suzanne

      earthquakes near reservoirs are not good, drilling for shale gas is just not needed

    Excellent writing, Michael. I like how you start with the memories of dancing and from there it gets darker and darker.

    1. Michael Humphris

      I was so pleased to read your feedback, thank you so much.

    That’s so true. Unfortunately, we seemed to have reached a point where Nature has started exacting revenge. Humans are indeed ushering in Armageddon. Well written!

    1. Michael Humphris

      Thank you Shweta, I hope the pessimism in my writing is miss-placed
