A Fragile World
It seems long ago when I was a child
Nature radiated simplicity and beauty.
It touched me deeply.
The pastel hues of light
Passing through delicate flower petals
Created unknown and wonderous worlds for me.
Tall weeds engulfed me
And I imagined with clarity
As children do
The adventures of a tiny person in green jungles
Populated by ferocious beasts of spiders,
Insects, and reptiles.
That curiosity and lust for adventure
Now takes me to a world under the sea
With plants and creatures few people will ever see
It is a place beyond childhood dreams
A fragile world that just like a dream,
Is fading from our world.
