The Flood

pyramids in China
Indonesia too
pyramids in Egypt
and too in Peru

pyramids from ancient times
when the ice did melt
as civilization crumbled
and everywhere was felt

a solar flare, or asteroid
which touched Earth in a flash
Zep Tepi and Atlantis
vanished in a splash

the northern ice sheet melted
the sea rose overnight
only the survivors
struggled so we might

one day reawaken
with another chance
to leave the world a better place
in lila's cosmic dance

we are each responsible
evolving to become
buddhas on a renewed world
because we all are one
