soul mates

Just gazing off into the sunset, i thought of how we are so much like nature. Were it not for our propensity for self-destruction, we, too, might have lived, in a safer, more gentler place.


There it stands
knarled,forsaken
its` deformities
telling tales
within its`rings
that no one can see


Were we
part of its`sad story?
or, was it that we
were merely incidental
visitors
of its`innocent
existence


See how its`hands
grope deep into Earth
as if to seek
a safer, more
gentler place 2 comments


The things its`seen
through seasons of torment
and quieter,gentler days
the rage of the elements
its`well aquainted with


Isn`t it so much like us?
see the wrinkled evidence
we too have gone
our withered ways
and, perhaps, someday soon
we will grope our way to a safer
more gentler place.
