Neglect

Down by the reservoir of dreams Waters reflect subconscious streams The lake’s mirror a mosaic Wishful well versed and prosaic Droplets of pain dissolve on touch Always to soothe never to judge Up in the sky eagles hold sway Kindle sweet lullaby’s soiree Send prayers for tomorrow’s prey Tuck their wingspan and portray Freedom bold faith and clear vision Succinct guidance and precision Blind underground earthworms dig deep Sift soil blindfolded into a heap Caress compost while they quietly roam Embrace their mission to turn over loam A labyrinth of tunnels and passage An amazing maze and direct message Just the like the waterfall and the kestrel The little creeper points to orchestral Symbiosis which we should protect Treat nature and planet with due respect Often though we are quite spineless creatures As birds and invertebrates teach us 1st May 2020

Well said my friend. I believe that all nature respects itself and others while Man destroys whatever he touches. Great job. God Bless, JB
