 Better Late Than Never

Scattered clouds over the sky

Crashing waves below

Nature rests peacefully.

But man tugs relentlessly at her

Chopping and burning and thrashing

The air is thick with his cruel plunder.

She heaves painfully

Pants and sighs and gasps for breath.

A Premonition!

Yet the beast doesn’t comprehend

He continues with his barrage.

The sea gurgles, the crust cracks,

The dance of the wind strengthens

Forcing all that it passes to collapse.

All man-made creations,

And all God-made creatures

Fall at her feet.

She stamps mercilessly on them

And avenges her outrage.

Nature is at her worst,

Man too is at his worst.

The Destroyer and the Destroyed.

Once more they rise in harmony

To re-start from the ashes.

For the moving clouds to watch

And the crashing waves to listen

To the soothing murmur of Nature

While Man rests peacefully in Her Hands.

Love Always


  1. Great commentary on an uneasy alliance. The earth will survive in one form or another but will stupid man? He hasn't yet realised the world doesn't revolve around him.

  2. Very good writing, Susan.
    Man abuses mother nature so much but I did like your title very much!
    Better late than never, let's hope!

  3. Thank you oldegg.Even if Nature retaliates man will never learn his lesson.

  4. Thank you Margie. Let's hope that we all learn to take care of her before it's too late.
