Josh Feldman // TENNIS BALL

An entire world resting in the palm of my hand

Seemingly abandoned, or destroyed.

 

Absolutely still.

 

What was once a fast flowing river,

Now a vacant canyon, dry as the Arizona desert, cutting through the landscape.

It used to be thick, green plant life surfacing the planet

Now nothing but dead leaves–crushed, stuck to the surface, rough to the touch.

 

In the past, a home to many.

Action-packed,

Exciting,

Thrilling,

Alive.

 

Now, I gaze in deep, somber thought at this lonely planet

Wondering how it all went wrong.
