The negative and the positive. Sometimes one is more dominant than the other. The sea burns into the land.
"Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice,
from what I have tasted of desire, I hold with those who favour fire.
But if I had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate to say
that for destruction ice is also great and would suffice"
- Fire & Ice by Robert Frost.

“A tree fell in the woods making a thunderous sound;
It roared of the Triumph of Man;
His rise with soaring empires,
And then plummeting to ground - to Earth;
Paving way for the Anew.
It belied of seasons bygone;
Inconsistent, yet cyclic.
The Sun shining bright one year, and rain plentiful;
Then a terrible frost.
Making it squeeze yet another ring;
Adding another circle to the years endured.
And here it is for us to read;
Tales of seasons bygone, and,
Between the lines, of human deeds.
“What compared ye, to the charts and projection”,
It cried our loud to the IPCC.
Then, thrusting its bulky trunk forward, it whispered,
“You can't touch this!”
