Treasure Island

Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)


Silently screaming, down she goes,
Clawing the ground her branching toes.
Cracking of limbs is heard all around,
Breaking her back, she falls to the ground.
Axe held high, then terrible blows,
Another one down, down she goes.
Forests are falling with awful sighs.
Roots bare and open now to the skies.
No matter the cost trees must fall.
Soon there will be no tree at all.
Another one down, and down she goes,
Crash to the floor, yet nobody knows
Where it will end, rape of the trees
Is bringing nature to it's knees.
With deforestation - down she goes.
Lunacy governs - and how it shows!

    great write my friend. i 'm guessing inspired by looking at house messed up the weather system has become and is becoming.

    The trees are essential to life
    More valuable to humanity
    Than diamonds and gold
    And the true worth of it, cannot be sold.

    Man has yet to realize
    That trees are really
    A God given prize
    Humble with beauty

    And not selfish at all
    Trees were put here
    To answer the call,
    Humanity they feed

    And give us air to breathe
    Yet we destroy them
    In the name of greed.
    Trees hold heaven, at its hem

    to calm the gods of nature and all
    Trees do their best, to answer the call. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
