Sharp points on verdant pine,
faded blooms of winter's coming,
whispering drops of storm's creation.

Children dance and laugh and play,
insects chitter
in joyful abundance.
All while jaded eyes glare over them

and see nothing but a wasteland
waiting to be sowed. . .


The author's comments:
Increasing amounts of people are growing blind to the nature all around them. They grow immersed in technology, and soon enough, will not even be able to appreciate the simple joy right in front of them. . .
