The Continuation of Nature

The beauty of nature

Contrasted by the terror of war

Live via satellite.

Chirping birds, rising sun;

The world is turning on its axis

As two nations quarrel.

And I sit.  And I watch.

As man’s destruction is broadcasted,

I rest in awe of truth.

Do the affairs of man

Appear realistic anymore?

All I see are blue skies.

I hear life, not just bombs;

I see beautiful tranquillity,

Not just catastrophe.

I was surprised to view the contrast:

The peaceful calm amid man’s actions.
