Sounds in Silence

Machine sounds grind on
Trees turn into woodchip mulch
Muddy tracks deepen


Muddy tracks deepen
Winter rains soften cleared ground
Machines sing progress


Squirrels watch nests pushed down
Winter rains melt red clay soil
Machines have no heart


Machines have no heart
“The end justifies the means”
Woodlands watch and weep


Population grows
Plague of human infestation
We demand comfort

  1. 😦 there are 3 new houses built on a 2-mile stretch of my road. two miles the other way massive areas of forest have been cleared for blueberry fields. 2 doors down a patch of forest is for sale. if it is bought it will soon come tumbling down
