1039 - Life Force


A North Melbourne footpath.


Life Force

Nature is a force of power,
Subtle but unrelenting;
Changes come not by the hour
But by constantly presenting.
Like a small but nagging child,
Nature is persisting.
In this way her petition’s filed
And will go on existing.

  1. I hope you are right. Sometimes I wonder whether the cockroaches and the algae will be all of nature's bounty which survives.

    1. That is true. We seem to think that if we become extinct that is the end of life. But no, life will go on without out us, despite us.

    Nature will resist. Once triggered off it will insist on its strengths!

  6. And thank goodness for that. Nature must persist, or man will break her into tiny terrible bits.

  7. She will go on, after ridding herself of us.

  8. If we wonder at Nature's persistence, we have only to look at Angkor Wat temple in the jungles of Thailand. Once an elaborate and revered temple, the jungle has reclaimed it as its own. A stirring sight. Great poem!

  12. If we keep on interfering nature might turn nasty and this could happen sooner than we think.
