Treasure Island

Maelea Mercado

Concrete and Nature

The Sun shone,
Bright and free
Lighting the land
As far as the eye can see
Until the great moutains
Where the bears reside
But buildings marre the land
Covering the grass
that would soon stand

Clouds form
Casting the sun aside
Looming black masses
A storm yet to come
Thought not to reach us
But still they run

Three days time a war begun
Between land and man
Nature and concrete
Angry winds swirl
Enraged rain pounds,
The earth at odds
With man and itself

Concrete destroyed
Buildings crumble
The land sobs
As its freed from the rubble
Years of darkness without Sun
the land under rejoices with glee
No longer tapped
Beneath stone, concrete, and metal
Most surviving by but a petal

Like death warmed over
Nature rises at last
Against all odds
They rise again
To take back the world
That we have murdered

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
