Haibun Thinking: Progress

Newly returned Haibun Thinking is on Art Week this week, with a choice between a photo from Sally at My Beautiful Things and a piece of art from Anja of Oh Pithy Me. I have chosen the photo. If you want to know about the challenge and what it entails, and what a Haibun is, then click the link above and have a read. If you want to see what others have written then click on this link here

.Life began millennia ago
Thousands of years, and ages past
At the time is seems slow
But in reality goes by so fast

Dinosaurs and spiders
Raptors and crocodiles
Winged creatures – gliders
Fish with big toothy smiles

A meteor destroys them
Makes way for Neanderthal
Not wearing stones or gems
In fact, wearing nothing at all

Many centuries go past
As man starts to grow
Each age adds to the last
Forcing leaders to show

Inventors come forth
Giving us enhancement
Man gets stuck in a rut
In need of advancement

The intelligence of man
Comes up with a solution
Nothing ever goes as planned
They destroy us with pollution

fish with seven eyes
lobsters the size of a house
progress destroys us
