A swarm of white specks drift lazily through the air
carried off by the wind to unknown destinations
summertime snow blows across dirty city skeletons
passing over car infested streets,
and empty malls.
bundles of genetic material
looking for fertile soil patches
to seed themselves, fusing with the Earth
spreading and connecting life,
growing trees that will inevitably be
cut down and burned by hungry humans.
While walking to work,
a weary man stops to look up at the sky
he’s never noticed it before,
he didn’t even know it was there.
Of course, he has seen pictures of blue skies
on his computer screen, they make for nice backgrounds
but the real thing far surpasses his puny imagination.
All worries and frustrations
melt away as the creature realizes that it’s alive
a seedling that still has room for growth.
