*poem inspired by making a word cloud of words I associate with nature*
Greed begets Intelligence
Animals rapidly become extinct
Beliefs about climate change
Ignorance – our children blame the seasons.
A pregnant pause, enlightenment shakes its head in disbelief.
Woe, our animals
Woe, our children
Woe, nature has become the beast.
Mortality balances out death
A rebirth of natural feelings causes us to sigh with our grief.
Oh, how to let the sunlight in?
Oh, how to bear these storms?
Oh, how to see the silver lining when mist obscures all common sense?
Oh, how will we learn to embrace the purity of snow,
When does our fatal flaw refuse to allow mother nature to get her way?
