Through the Mist I see

My hand strokes the Crystal Ball
I peer, as it fills with Mist
Then appears a Mushroom Cloud
I cannot see where

A child alone and crying
on a filthy run down street
A Military Tyrant
as he shakes his fist

A barren field, void of life
parched, the Earth is deeply cracked
But wait! Through the Mist I see
a Rose stands alone.


For Linda-Maries Crystal Ball contest
