after the 1951 movie of that name




the day the earth stood still

 

 

when the last plane is grounded

the last train shedded

the last auto and truck parked

the last office door locked

the last theater and restaurant shuttered

when the earth stands still

all that will be left is each other

then we will learn what we have wondered

are we good or are we not

are we generous or are we not

are we a species worth saving or are we not

are we salvageable 

 

i'm watching the sunset through the window   having soup

listening to marketa play the piano   thinking thoughts

*These thoughts* I mean.

These though although personal have a universal appeal to them. In times like this, we all are "thinking thoughts" and contemplating the future.
