Something green that lacks

People turning plastic and heat is getting Drastic
This is where our World would be headed, no trees no and no green ground cover " something green that lurks and that will indeed lack.

Something green that lacks


A being you are,
Are you by Beauty or by Nature?
A depiction of tragedy, or that of the Creator?
By choice or by default?
Of beauty by choice or that of Nature?,
Of Nature by default or by that of Tragedy?

For the Law of Nature is by default,
But that of beauty is ,in fact, by revolt.

Something that is Green is lacking,
For that which was ,is now lost.
And that which is not green is left suffocating,
Choking the Soul of that which was ,and which is almost gone.
All left for the almighty to behold.

Something that is green is lacking,
And it is not by Nature but by Choice.
For beauty and not for the Almighty,
He warns of the dire consequences, but man is too deaf to hear his Voice.
For the Being has chosen that which was, which is, should indeed no longer be.
Chosen Beauty over Nature.

He shutters the Potter’s finest vase,
And then ,reassembles it into a mosaic of horror.
As foolish as he is, cuts the branch that he sits upon
To make arrows that are to be shot at none but himself, Oh alas!

Man is the victim of Himself ,surrounding himself from horizon to horizon
And he shall always be ‘til his untimely death of terror.
Something green ,indeed ,that lacks.

He is for beauty and not for nature,
For foolishness and not for Wisdom
Not for the Almighty but for Tragedy
Craves for knowledge but ignorant of the Kingdom.
These are the true lurking allegories of extinction.

But he has sentenced all his senses into exile,
Something that is green is indeed lacking
For man will always be wanting
Until that which is wanted will finally turn into nothing.

Without the nature that is nourishing us, we will be history; that is why we call it Mother Nature - siva

Wow! You are deep. Extremely impressed by this. Something green that lacks....state of the world and mankind. You summed it up so nicely in this poem that I am really at a loss for words! And Siva, your comment was poetic in itself.
