Shine

blue pink trees hazy misty

A tangle of branches
Climbs into the clouds,
Swaying in the soft summer breeze.
Gentle scene offers a reprieve
From the dramas playing out on the ground.
Teeth against talons–
A stream of screams breaks the peace
And the air bleeds with sound.
Seeds borne of strife
Sail through the winds of time,
A boon to one,
An ending to another,
And the sun continues to shine.

  6. Nature nicely summed up. Why is there no poetry in science classes? Would probably make both poetry and science more popular.
