End of the World

They said the world would end.
Four days ago.

Instead, a cold wind blows.
It is December, after all.

All the energy spent -
By the popular press.

Tabloid tales -
Doom and destruction.

Yet the sun still shines.
The wind still blows.

The rain still falls.
Droplets on brown leaves.

Inside a microcosm -
Bacteria scurry about.

Like they always have.
But there is something different.

The change is almost undetectable.
Transitions rarely begin with a bang.

Rather they are another step.
Forward in this paragon of existence.

God is wise.
And has unlimited patience.
