Nature Returns

DSCN3187

When mankind retreats

And leaves abandoned,

Concrete slabs

And platforms hardened,

Nature returns

With soft root and stem

And swiftly reclaims

What was trampled by them.

She stretches and reaches,

She grows and she smothers

The cold ugly grey,

And with colour recovers.
