Nature’s Copy

What broken nature lies before us,

Stuck

Like a stick in the ground.

 

It is not meant to be there

And tries to force

And squeeze

Shallow beauty from our hearts.

 

It’s imitation is of a lake,

Or a natural park

And yet, it is transparent and false,

The man-made copy

Is nothing but an empty shell.

  1. As much as I love man-made parks, etc, there is something slightly alien about them. They feel safer than the rawness of true nature, jungle, forest, desert.
