memories of green

Updated on January 8, 2015

lasting presence

As i stand

on this balcony

of concrete

and look across

office blocks

unused

my eyes sombered

with flashing

memories

of

the

wavering trees

and the

buzzing bees

the flap of the

butterflies wings

that once

flew

by

chasing

across

clear

blue sky

the perfume of

the wild flowers

the trickling brook

from the springwell

did flourish


as I look

how it is

now


the

fast

growing towers

the grey blue smoke

from the cars

rushing by

vapour trails

filling the sky

buzzing sounds

from the

rows of Pylons

all around

so called progress

has built this mess

for a

society

which struggles to

breath this

now polluuted

air

      So many people, especially children, only know the concrete jungle and never have the joy of a truly green environment. A great reminder of what we are doing to our countries.

      Love this and so true. So much that is natural gets replace with that which is artificial.

      greencha,

      I agree greatly and feel that the air around us is polluted

      and this is due to human industrialization and other things.

      Voted up and shared.

      So true, all that is natural, the green trees, green grass, wild flowers, being replaced with concrete, and pollution to our environment. So unhealthy for us all.
