Two Trees Lost in Time

August 10, 2020

Let us sit in the grass
and watch the world move on
Just two shadows
lost in time
savoring
fleeting moments

Let us sit in the grass
and watch the world move on
Let our eyes roam across the evolving grey
landscape
and watch it drift
into dust

Let us sit in the grass
and watch the world move on
Creatures, lives,
mysteries
evolve
As history plays an
eternal rhythm

Let us sit in the grass
and watch the world move on
Time shifts around our outstretched arms
Yet we are lost
in its mercurial
chaos

Let us sit in the grass
and watch the world move on
Our smooth bark
now rough and weathered
Reflecting a changing
world

Let us sit in the grass
and watch the world move on
Ephemeral joys
sparks of memories
Now forgotten and buried
amongst the abysmal rivers
of time

Let us sit in the grass
and watch the world mo-
Oh
you decay, a flaking mass
falling back to the loam
The surface a graveyard and a nursery
A sprout of a new life

Let me sit in the grass
and watch the world
move on
Life is glass
And we are fragments
Shattering
and fitting like a puzzle

Let me sit in the grass
And watch the world move on
As my roots
Deep in the soil
Curl slowly
And close in darkness

Let us sink further
in the grass
A warm pillow
Hugging our crumbling frames
Now we watch
our own temporal existence
end
Observing the immortal skies
Silver wisps gracefully dance
as we fall humbly
Into the
Earth

 
This was a piece I simply just started writing out of thin air, and I think it turned out okay? (I only noticed it matched this week's writing streak prompt after I developed most of the writing!) I hope to try piecing something together with a conscious plan in mind for my next attempt though. Maybe it'll reach the precise effect I'm looking for that way.

    Oh I just came back and saw this lol. Thank you! You've almost got the replying thing down, but you need to type the reply on a piece of the person you're replying to, or they won't get a notification and notice you've said something. :)
