Little victories

The city moves and laughs and sings
Of lurid lights and fancy things 
Of static electricity 
And many opportunities 

The acid clouds are dismal gray 
Leave not a single trace of day 
Wind withers and regains its speed
A buried, lonely poplar seed 

But while the city screams and clanks 
And people march in suited ranks 
A little light the clouds do show
Wait now, the seed begins to grow

    I LOVE the contrast you show between man and nature, and that ending is truly awesome. I think it's time to add you to my favourite poets list!

    In the midst of all this chaos there's still countless signs of life... in big ways and small. I like the way you capture the great triumph of the seed growing in contrast to the millions of things that could go wrong. Awesome work!

    Great write, Jeremy! I especially like the line "and people march in suited ranks." Great rhyme and flow! Love, Kim
