I published this poem here on Poeter.se the 2nd of April, 2015. I republish it here due to IPPC:s latest report.

Jet streams and Jet lags.

Whith steps and turns so refined they grant the air exquisite flair; then spin the Globe within
a thread, entwined, into a singel stance,
inclined, to weave each breath into their coat.

As night gives way to day and breeze my lids
the dancers of the air will trim the angles of
the Earth; then clear the seal for sun and
moon and finely tune the brims. Jet lags, of
a magnitude unknown might be the price
for flights that do not pay them due respect.


The Jet streams are four winds that
continually circulate around the Earth,
two on the Northen hemisphere
and two on the Southern hemisphere.
They are essential for the preservation
of a stable climate.
According to many climate-scientists
though, för the last 15 years, especially
the Jet stream closest to the Arctic,
the Polar Jet Stream, has due to
global warming begun to show some
quite serious irregularities, adding
to the frequency and severness of
droughts and winters etc.
