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.



was a strange experience for me.

I sat in the car,

engine roaring,


I looked at the bent trees

and the tousled leaves and found them



But then my step-dad

turned the car


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?
