Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

Birth Death Change In Culture

languages define with rhythms cadence styles
best voiced in local flavours speech pattern phrases
sentences flow in rich native cultural expressions

we are deeper roots the one root of shared humanity
in a global world our branches are internationally tangled
now more so in the future hybrid cultures will be bred

this is where the future meets the past
ancient migrations created new cultures
new civilizations speech new languages

even between generations there is status flux
new words new meanings changed meanings
words created words extinct cultural rivers

    we are deeper roots the one root of shared humanity

    now more so in the future hybrid cultures will be bred/// excellent poetic expression
