Skywatch Friday: On Fire Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email Other Apps By SandyCarlson - November 10, 2011 Some say the world will end in fire,Some say in ice.From what I've tasted of desireI hold with those who favor fire.But if it had to perish twice,I think I know enough of hateTo say that for destruction iceIs also greatAnd would suffice.

The anger, the hatred, the racism, the selfishness within us builds up greater ripples outside us, and kills us before we perish in fire or ice.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyZuzana3:56 PMThat is truly a stunning sky, looks as if painted by brushstrokes of colour. Stunning.;))xoxoReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAdd commentLoad more... Post a Comment Thanks for being here.
