Sunday Scribblings: Mess

The Sunday Scribblings prompt this week is mess.

If this is not true testament of how mankind has diseased itself, I don't know what else is.

Our insatiable thirst has left so many peoples of the world displaced and hungry and riddled with war. And we continue to ask for more.

An ocean that has defied a beginning and an end. Its existence stretches far beyond our minuscule capabilities and our simple thoughts, yet we have skillfully mastered a way to clog and burden and stain.

Is it too much to ask for urgency? How can we hold a corporation accountable for a mishap of this multitude?

There is more to this place than us.

Blood and our lustful thirst for war, this desire to drill, constantly initiating unjust sanctions, Earth and her silent call, our pathetic idea of a 'left' who denies the necessary progressive leap onward. And most importantly, our water and Her air and yet, another filthy mess.


  1. these pictures are so sad.
    Archna for Queen!

  2. This is definitely one of the strongest images of a mess that we have right now.

  3. We are all responsible for this mess... everyone who says no to wind power because they dont like the sight of wind turbines, all of us that drive when we could walk, use plastic when we could do without - we are the ones to blame! A timely post, thank you

  4. Let us hope this disaster does open all our minds sufficiently to rethink the whole energy thing. We know oil just will not last and we have got to make some hard decisions. This event should be the catalyst for real action now.

    Thank you so much for a horrifying post to wake us up.
