Life Finds A Way. - Poem by William Jackson

The dark horses come
galloping across the fields,
crushing every single one
of my sky blue orchids.

Even so, new life creeps
from roots in the dank earth,
forming green shoots and yielding
twice as many blossoms.

    You got a lot of comments! That first stanza is really strong, you got some elemental images that really embody the power of Nature! (Report) Reply
