Heaven Waits

Written by: James Marshall Goff

Heaven never rests
While pinecones, green with youth
Cling to promises the sun will conquer-

Heat waves rising off pavement
Covering centuries called progress

Wings, heavy with fatigue, settle
For any patch of green to rest

Unable to locate the wetlands 
Drained to rivers that now run
Straight to shareholders, blinded
By greed

Only at night, away from the city
Lights, can I see the stars
Invite travel to a natural world

Untouched by man


                                        By Man
