It's the End of the World


It’s the End of the World

According to some interpretations of the Mayan calendar, the world is scheduled to end one day in the next week. Predictions vary: it could mean that all mankind will undergo a spiritual transformation, or that the Earth will collide with a black hole or the planet Nibiru — in which case, there’s no need to finish all that Christmas shopping. Or maybe it’s just the close of another year. Whatever happens, here are six original poems on endings.

Hi Chris and libra,

I liked the first poem by Gregory Orr, which is why I posted the link. My hope is that the end of the world will be the beginning of a spiritual transformation for mankind. . . .
