The Face of Mother Nature

Roses wrapped in vines
my face green as a tropical forest.
look into my eye sockets,
you can see your future.
my lips are sealed,
no evil to be said.
my eyes are gone,
only to see no evil.
my ears covered with my rose-viney hair,
to hear no evil.
as my roses die,
so do you.
as my vines die,
so does your earth.
as mother nature kills,
and recreates
this world full of evil and lies,
into a stream of beautiful nature
with unconditional love.

I like this! Short but the words are good and they evoke sharp images.
