Nature Lives Here Now

My response to MLMM’s photo challenge #393, also for MVB: Listen, is a free-verse poem (I guess).


Nature overtaking
What had been a bustling
House; chairs filled with
People gathering now
Host vines of ivy
And verdant green.

Take in the silence,
Begin to listen closely
To hear a humbling
Warning: nature overtaking
Even entire cities, for
No building lasts forever.
