Mother Earth

Reclaims

What was once

All her own

From beyond

The ruins

Of this life we led

All selfish pursuits

And careless destruction

With never a thought

For the future

We built more

Always more

More than we could manage

Until it fell

Into its inevitable end

The demise of our dreams

with Mother Earth

Returning

To cover our tracks,

hide the signs

Of the life

That once was ours – Caroline A. Slee

Ruins
