The Fish are dying
Polluted our crystal clear waters

    I really like how you feel in this write. We actually have very similar thoughts on nature. I am an avid birder too! Good job on the portraying of anger towards destruction and being kept under finger! (Report) Reply

    Stark observations. Fierce reminder that just because we live here, it doesn't mean we own the place. Great write. (Report) Reply

    The first two stanzas serve as moving jabs to our consciences.
    The last illustrates very well the complexity of modern life. (Report) Reply
