The dust had settled

The dust had settled

Landscapes gyrating

Moon a backdrop of ashes

the Earth spun onwards

The soot filled the sky

fragments disintegrating

the ground split in flakes

Dirt strewn everywhere

the flowers lost to the weed

battles in gardens

Tea estates littered

cinders from the teeming pit

Magmatic plates moved

Soil’s upheaval

The hills turned into mountains;

valleys disappeared

Churning sand of time

Gradual recovery

the dust had settled
