"Bibles" of the future

Posted 11-28-2018 at 07:46 PM by KaraZetterberg153

Assuming humans survive our current difficulties -- ecological disaster, the possibility of nuclear war -- perhaps our current holy books will go the way of prior literature and be forgotten by all but the most erudite scholars. Of course the notion that we will survive is by no means certain. But if we do, what current great books do you think will survive and perhaps become the new holy books?

I would vote for Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass." It qualifies in every way....

Eden Remembered

Posted 11-28-2018 at 07:37 AM by elston

I have been reworking a poem I wrote and posted some years ago.

Eden Remembered

Why do we call it "Fall"?
Perhaps because of children falling
into piles of scarlet and gold or
Summer herself, falling like Rome;

Mother called the bruised apples that fell
Beneath the trees, "drops".
She hurried to use them before they spoiled.
"Don't slam that door; I have a cake in the oven."...
