A to Z Challenge – Nature and I
Vintage now, but dimpled smiles, buoyant emotions, vernal appeal defined nature’s looks back then
Veil of apathy, obsession with material development blurred man’s vision, as his tryst with progress continued unabated.
Values unmoored from his soul; the intellect eclipsed by the gossamer of unsatiable greed
Variegated panorama, scarred by his brazen nonchalance, burnt to ashes
Vestige contours of her primeval allure, fading into oblivion, buried under layers of manmade detritus
Vapid soul of nature gasps for breath, as the mortal hands pierce the scalpel deeper, she sheds silent tears, as her ruptured veins bleed a slow death
Virulence must stop, with a collective pledge to reinstate her lost verdant glory, or we brace ourselves to write an epitaph, to be tombed over mankind
