Despondent

Despondent

 

Crushed once more

as flotsam and jetsam

used and re used

as a kitchen cloth

generosity freely given

abused with a wince

a discarded wine bottle

no longer of value

recycled humanity

bereft of self respect

no respect for others

a forest fire rages

scorched earth remains

but nature does renew

pain and recovery

restored by the dew

as with the seasons

oft despondent

in winter´s frost

resurrection comes

with summer´s blast

◄ To Hoard

Restless Inner Solitude ►

a fine poem Keith with lots of interwoven imagery. Thanks for posting, Colin.
