I’d sat down to write this morning. I had a short story half-planned in my head. Then I had a twitter exchange with Alex (@lx69), about the nature in our respective localities.
This all started a thought process and then a memory of one of @tontosgirl’s tweets. The output of all of that is below.
Green and pleasant,
Until concrete and tarmac,
Full of description and wonder,
Until a greater need is perceived.
Once, intricate and vast,
Complex and marvellous,
Now, fragmented and fallen,
Reduced and Submitted.
Home to thousands,
Destroyed by the one,
Granted protection and promise,
All false and all failed.
Loves false promise fulfilled,
Bit by bit, the one will become none,
Still time, still hope?
