Nature By Jill

The fiery orange glowing against the darkness
Its long fingered branches catch my hair
It looks like a very happy tree
Sitting in its man made soil

Next to me is a dark green shrub
It looks like a marsh mellow sitting in a closed microwave
It screams and pricks me as the hedge trimmers arrive
He’s so beautiful, yet barely alive

The tall lonesome elm tree
Standing far above the grass
Its beauty is breath taking
Its sources are too
The chain saw comes
And the elephant tree falls on to a man

The garden so happy
So welcoming to sit
To think about how much of it,
Is covering all the grass
