For Better, For Worse?

Concrete, steel, glass

Do they inspire?

A greengrocer …

gobbled by modernity

Tall skyscrapers

multi-storied complexes

super megastores

bear testimony

~

A blade of grass

a wildflower

things that pulse

with life

give way

to hearts of mortar

What gentle breeze

blows in the

morning song

the early bird

on dawn’s

calling of the day?

Calm, sparkling

wide sea of

choices is as

certain as the

ebb and flow

of tide

today

tomorrow of time.

Fresh hues of

sweet scented jasmine

pure and delicate

permeating beauty

and all of life’s

amazing wonders

this gem of a pearl.
