Sun shine through the kaleidoscope of nature,
through the rose colored glasses false hopes are seen,
hopes of the future anticipated.
The rain gently falls upon the gray earth,
acid wash melting all the beautiful pictures,
leaving hints of regret in the mind.
Chemically tainted snow blankets the ground,
covering ages of natural wonder.
A spring thaw lets breathe newness
of what will eventually be.
Hopefully a learning process to be mimicked
by mankind if survival is to be sustained.
If not the green will turn to gray,
covering the earth in a toxic film,
never to be lifted, not even by God's hand.
Timothy Michael DiVito c1994
