Grown Apart

 

Saw a tree

growing

out of an old

abandoned house,

it’s branches

poking through

the windows

and out of holes

in the walls.

  

Nature is marvelous.

It seeks a way

to grow

inside of everything.

Nothing can stop it,

as least,

not for long.

 

One day,

when we are gone,

they say that nature

will reclaim

everything.

The cities,

the roads,

the sky.

It is nature’s

imperative

to grow

and bring together,

but not me;

 

I have grown apart.
