Poem for Totally Optional Prompts

Totally Optional Prompts: Planning or Spontaneity


chainsaw grumbling
not the silky rumble
of a smooth-ride Harley

one more Douglas Fir
drops limb by limb
free of second thought

tear it down, change it up
pave it over, plant a roof
chainsaw grumbles

When all that's left is homes, buildings, etc... will nature be remembered? Sad poem but strong realities. Well done.

The result of the false idol of unlimited urban growth. You touch upon my heart with these words. It makes me sad too.

very cool how you wrote this.
wonderful for 'restless'
reminds me of Joni Mitchell's: pave paradise and put up a parking lot

love the:
not the silky rumble
of a smooth-ride Harley
