Two Worlds Within One

on December 3, 2011

Here’s a poem I wrote today, while out admiring nature πŸ™‚ Enjoy!

She stood upon stage of velvet grass

Of granite trees and leaves made of glass

Each tender piece was dropped and shattered

She tried to outrun them, but floor soon was blood spattered

Fall down she did, in a whirling rabbit hole

In a foreign dyed land, that lacked a soul

Where she walked upon rough tan rocky terrain

With ironclad horses, color from her then detained

The people, unknowing, that their land made of paper

Could not stand the pressure, or breathe in the vapors

Was dying just trying to stay strong and cope

With every attempt, sliding down a lonesome slope

She stood upon stage of beige concrete grass

Of trees caught in power lines, streets littered with glass

Each corner was sinking under mounds of pollution

While the answer was clear, folks looked hard for solution

Fall down she did, in a stinking manhole

In a foreign dyed world, that embodied pure soul

The birds ever-present, the wind hugged a greeting

And gentle night revealed a host of stars brightly gleaming

The people, full knowing, cared for land made of paper

Their tenderness and obedience to Earth made life even greater

The world grew and blossomed, it cared much in turn

From both worlds we all have plenty to learn

    I think my new year is going to really want that poem to be part of its theme – if we truly are masters of the earth, sky and sea, then at the end of the day we have to give a report – for they belong to us to bring healing to the world.

  4. I love this line especially: In a foreign dyed world, that embodied pure soul

    Great poem! Thanks also for visiting my blog!

    I like and need both worlds, the soft and the hard. Concrete is really good for skateboarding; earthen, good for strolling.

    This is so fun, taking me into a eco minded Alice in Wonderland type place. You have difficult rhyme schemes here and the energy you put into them were well worth it. I enjoyed it very much.
    Thank you as well for liking my post “Anytime you go dry.” I am so glad to be directed your way this snowy day… and beautifullu as you say, it is def “snowing on wordpress!”

      Yes, that’s exactly what it is! I was trying to figure out a way to explain it, and you put it perfectly – “an eco minded Alice in Wonderland type place.” Thanks so much for reading! πŸ™‚
