The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!


Last Meal
by Angela Yuriko Smith

From the wretched deep
spews the last good and pure thing
to be forgotten.
Tainted in a world
of death, rot, and pestilence—
mixing in the swamp.
Waters of Eden
holding the secret to life—
immortal treasure
vomited from earth
victim of man’s hungry search
for practical things.
Oil, gold, diamonds, blood…
insatiable appetites
sink ever deeper
into Gaia’s heart
bleeding her out like wild game
to be devoured.
Ignorant, we feast
careless of the destruction.
This is our last meal.

  1. A cautionary tale for our wasteful times – great poem.

  2. Marge Simon says:

    I agree with Alex Grey — Good one, Angela!
    Humanity’s just desserts (well, civilized humanity, anyway.) I believe some cults and tribes, Pagan and otherwise, revere Gaia in all ways,
