PS: Dinosaurs, as in Dinosaurian, first appeared during the Triassic period, between 243 and 233 million years ago and became extinct some 65 million years ago, at the end of the Cretaceous Period. Thus so after living on Earth for about 165 million years. It would seem man need not fear for his longevity, for at our present rate of self destruct, we shall achieve extinction, in far fewer years than our dinosaurian forerunners!
On faces lined so deep
Its dawn shadows pale,
As if cowed to life’s cruelty
Bears non dissipative crinkles,
Would fix ye seek empaled paths
In pitiless valleys of aged wrinkles....
Despite ill meant fallows
In yawning sculpted lines,
Imaging cragged hollows
On aging faces thus inclined,
Etched so to not find mellow
When soul wants mirror life,
If but to blur ye fated journey
That bares one’s tales of strife,
A way in mortal’s thorny travel…
Alas, on faces of ensuing phases
As in near end of memory’s purpose,
To find space sits in mind’s lost places
Will suffer interpret phantasms traces,
While recall occurs late and sadly wasted!
