The hubris of human-caused climate change is killing the Buddha

Still Life
CC Jean Stimmell: 3/30/17

In the teeth of the coming cataclysm
 of human-caused climate change, 
the ghost of Buddha laments that 
we have poisoned the spring of 
Rebirth and Eternal Return.

Reincarnation will be no more.

Wild cows cast accusing stares after the Apocalypse

Wild steers in Strafford, NH**
CC Jean Stimmell: 3/27/17
Wild cows cast accusing stares 
at the few remaining humans,
survivors of the great extinction:
our climate-change apocalypse

**My original photo of steers in Strafford NH, standing atop huge pile of debris, was taken 7/25/15. Today I added five skulls and a poem. CC Jean Stimmell

Gazing Darkly through the Trump Looking Glass

Russet & Coco rendered darkly
behind an abandoned sewer pipe
 at Long Sands Beach
CC Jean Stimmell: 3/17/17
With the election of Trump, 
we  have stepped through 
the looking glass into an 
alternate world of 

where only
the fittest
and richest 
will survive.

End of the Line: A metaphor for our times?

Still Life 3/5/17
CC Jean Stimmell
Artifacts wash up
with the spring melt:

of civilizations
– and species– 

gone bust

Or, perhaps, an inverted metaphor for our times?
