Poem: Transformation — Naturetelling

Forests of cedar and evergreens swathed the land Mountains, plants and streams of water like Switzerland A momentary shift to desert, from soil to sand Life moves in cycles, so trees shall once again stand  Beats from the darbucka, give growth a helping hand  From scorching red-beige to fertile green, no more bland  Oases flourish,… Poem: Transformation — Naturetelling Continue reading Poem: Transformation — Naturetelling
