Gaudy, Mother Nature is not
Never does she show poor taste
how she displays herself
Can you think of a time?
We may disagree with the clouds
she hangs overhead, and
the rain they dump on our parade
But hardly gaudy, you would agree
Yet, as we look in the cosmic mirror
it often seems we, as one
of her more able creatures
fail to live up to her high standards
Why else would we paint over
her beautiful forests and streams
with all our houses, roads and utility lines?
Someone please take away the brush!
Slowly it seems, we are catching on
It’s high time, we show better taste
in how we live our lives
Don’t you think?
Rant: Sometimes I wonder what the heck
we are doing to our world. We build beyond
what we need. Less is more. Don’t you think?
