 SEEDS OF GROWTH by Pam

NATURE VS NUTURE (revised)




It began when seedlings
suckled nourishment
from Mother earth's
seasoned event.

Maples, winged angels
conjoined in pairs
bore leaves of orange
red russet hues, and shares
of offerings, sweet syrup to use.

The Oaks, Quercus genus
such bold evergreens
held fruitful acorns for
future store means.

And 'so Weeping Willows
scored melodies
orchestral leaves
hanging from boughs
caught in the breeze.
Umbrella shades
they also gave
for the passers-bye
on sweltering days.

~~~~~~~~~~~
                  
A minute beginning
of glorious grace
recycled in time
until man took his place;

altered perfections
chaotic space,
syringe filled injections
of man's disgrace
traced back to the Garden of Eden.

Nature replies with weeping eyes
struggling to stay Her integrity.
Yet, She suffers intrusions,
man's pious illusions of cupidity,
as he spreads poison icing
upon fertile earth,
seeps deep in the ground
retarding its birth.

Now the Oceans once teeming
with Life are now screaming,
while black pollutants
of greed attack meaning
to that of the waters
which tides to the moon,
man stays blind
inside his cocoon.

The skies lungs impaled
breathe noxious breath,
excretions imbuing,
man's own undoing
promises death
