Soothing nature      -     Gueret, France, 2013

Soothing nature – Gueret, France, 2013 (Photo credit: romainverneuil.com)

 

The trends that beset us are only for a time

 

Slowly, gradually, growing

 

So widely that it is uncontrolled

 

After a time…where is the knowing

 

That once beheld us safely

 

Teaching, grasping, staid

 

The days are now moving hastily

 

Seemingly without a care

 

For what has ultimately been made

 

Straying, aloof, not there

 

Long is the summer full of rampage

 

Violent, hot, lascivious

 

Artificial air is my cage

 

Soothing, wanted, superfluous

 

A calming peace drives in through the night

 

Softly, straight, throughout

 

White becomes black and black becomes white

 

The addiction inevitably brings on the drought

 

Riches are worthless in an impoverished land

 

Selfishly, possessive, ungracious

 

Where none make the exchange from one to the other hand

 

Aiding, abetting, abolishing

 

The days are upon us

 

For the trends that beset us

 

To be malnourished, negated, done
