She was asleep…

a poem by Sai Prasad Ramnarayanan

It was a breathtaking sight,
The silhouette of beauty,
It turned and spoke,
A distant buzz swept in,
The speech subsided,
It was listening…

The winds picked up speed,
It started to pour heavily,
Water covered the land,
The seas ruled over mountains,
Extinction ruled the earth.

The buzzing stopped,
There was silence in the air,
I could hear her breathe,
A marvel of science,
She survived!
She was asleep…
