The river; Flowing at its pace, Criss-crossing Through miles of land, Ends in the sea. The sea; with all the wealth That the river brings from the land Merges with the ocean. The ocean, Despite its vastness, Is not content. Wants more of the share of land. It connives, With the sun, the wind. Generating large volumes; Humongous clouds, Dark and menacing. They rain in torrents on the hapless earth. The rivers gain strength Eating, eroding the land And returning to the ocean. This cycle, Interconnectedness, Self-sustaining, Balancing, Never ending. Where are we humans? Does nature ever care? Can we really make an impact In this network Of nature?
