Evolution

.

As I gaze at the small green triangle, that was once a wide

Grassy hillside, I see the haze, the mist, closing in slowly,

Creeping downward and blanketing all in its path.

Where once there were meadows, streams and

Strong green trees, now human ants have eaten

Them all away, leaving only a concrete jungle,

Expanding by the day. Progress? Or regress?

I would rather the flower-filled view,

Changing with the seasons,

Than the neat, cemented, sanitized structures,

Impersonal clones that we call homes.

GOODBYE AFRICA

GOODBYE AFRICA

Rich velvet voices,
Voices of molten gold,
Silver threads embroider
An audible picture
Of beauty in the wild.

Harmonising sounds,
Shades of dark and light,
As the Painter wields his brush
Creating His portrait of life.

Songs of joy,
Traces of sadness,
Goodbye Africa departing,
The old replaced by the new,
Gold replaced with dross.
