15. Blocked Beauty

 

I have noticed

that the white-tinted tree amongst all

the other emerald leaves,

is now a brown-pink spectacle.

I preferred it white.

But it still stands out from all the others,

and it's still my favourite

tree in the field.

 

Yesterday,

was a strange experience for me.

I sat in the car,

engine roaring,

waiting.

I looked at the bent trees

and the tousled leaves and found them

pretty.

 

But then my step-dad

turned the car

off.

And I was met with this

miraculous wave of sound.

 

I heard

birds cooing

and the wind whistling it's merry tune

and distant chatter.

I saw the white rippling through

green blades of grass,

and the slight waver of orange leaves and

it was so much more prettier

then it ever was before.

 

I realised that

because of the roar from a man-made thing,

I did not observe the beauty

of such a simple environment.

 

It struck me.

 

Did we realise the extent of our creations?

 

We truly have begun

to destroy the gentle earth,

haven't we?
