Before


Nature's natural beauty tells
A story of when Earth was well
Before the bullets, bombs, and blood
Before death fell from up above.

The ocean breeze sang ancient tune
Crisp melody of salty blue
Weathered willows waltzed to measure
Orchestrated, all danced together.

Sea-soaked sand swirled 'round red rocks
Riding upon waves' frothy tops
Rustled leaves ran rampant by
These elders trees who'd climbed the skies.

A flower born, soil sprung new life
Rainshower is but a prairie's wife
Serpents slithered low to ground
Caressing shade while homeward bound.

Creatures of the caves lay hidden
While bumblebees in spring flew smitten
Snowflakes softened hardened land
Such beauty drawn by nature's hand.

One life to live, no moment wasted
True essence of existence tasted
This world was green, was blue, was free
'Til raped by murderous Man's machines.
