Their Spirits Are Dying

October 3, 2008

The global warming victims of time. Animals.
On their way up to heaven, their spirits form a synchronized dance.
Fireflies of the dead.
Just like snowflakes, no one the same, but each the same as the one right before.
The global warming victims of life. Humans.
Global warming affects us, we mostly cause it.
On our way up to heaven or total darkness, we form the northern lights that light our names across the sky. Holy ghosts.
Like butterflies, most may look the same but each unique in a different way.
