274. October 1st
Harnessing the power of nature,
For our own ends.
Using what we have, to make something new,
What we have is changed.
The earth is dangerous and wonderfully made,
A ball of rock filled with life.
Constantly moving and changing,
Our restless earth.
Never does this world stop,
And rarely alters its course.
Neither it's inhabitants not itself,
Are dead or even lie still.
