Human (vs.) Nature

A tender light on the horizon
The sky turns into a soft red
The beauty of the morning enfolds
A plane rides straight through it
And leaves a white trail
Cutting the sky in pieces.
Quite morning hours
Birds waking up starting their choirs
A harmonic melody floats through the air
A truck comes to an abrupt halt
Shrieking tires on sleeping asphalt
The birds are quiet now.
Beautiful tree giants rising from the forest
50 shades of green
A living lung for the planet
Dark smoke shadows the view
Cracking wood under red flames
Destroying the beauty of nature.
Nature has its beauty
Grown through millenias
Earth is a living organism
Humans build their fortresses against nature
Suppressing natural elegance through the concrete
Burning down forests, exploiting the earth.
Quietly absorbing the world around us
No thought, no possessions, nothing there
Living right now, living right here
Thinking about the forgotten oven, yesterday and tomorrow,
Only worrying about money and property
Forgetting the moment living for the next deadline.
