The Yule After
By: Autumn Rain
I take a breath and sigh.
The world around me is slowly fading,
The trees are dying, the plants are failing.
But no one seems to notice.
I remember the life I lived the things Iíve seen.
I remember when the wind whispered my name,
When the sunrise told me secrets,
When the earth would sing a song;
But there is none of that now.
The wind doesnít whisper,
The sunrise doesnít tell secrets,
And the earth doesnít sing.
There is no life.
There is nothing but a hollow shell of the world we once knew
Itís a hollow shell of empty people with empty lives
Itís as if there was never any life to begin with.
Itís as if no one notices that the magick is gone
Itís as if no one notices the connection we have lost.
But I notice.
I noticed when the leaves would change their color.
I noticed when seasons changed and the earthís everlasting beauty.
I noticed the connection between mother earth and man.
Everything has changed.
It is a post apocalypse Yule
And the very souls of our beings have disappeared.
But in the distant future,
Whatever future that may be,
There is a glimmer of hope.
There is hope for those of us who never lost the connection.
There is hope for those of us who notice the magick missing.
There is hope for those of us who still feel the seasons change.
There is still hope for the spiritually inclined.
Because in the life of the post apocalypse Yule,
The ones who notice,
Never fade away.
