No tears

Having only some

understanding of your language

there is no clarity

Still don’t trust the message

Masks do not cover

there is no truth in your eyes

Can’t see your lips moving

yet we still know you lie

In some distant future

puzzling over skeletal remains

they won’t tell you from other

lower forms of life

No tears shed for your extinction

    • Thank you. Happy that you found beauty in it. An old tree can be gnarled and discolored, perhaps even macabre or sinister in it’s appearance. Still, there is beauty that resides there. Not all can see it, but it is there nonetheless 🙂
