Growth, Rise, and Fall

Growth, Rise, and Fall

A Poem by FarisGreybear

28 January 2015 A.D., F.Greybear

Leaves fall,
Plants feed the seed.
Sun and rain, wind about,
Encourage the sprout
Slowly taking root,
And sprouting leaf,
Towards the light.

Faith questioned,
Strengthened belief.
Trunk grows out,
So strong against the breeze.
Watered by seasons of storms,
And weathered by suffering droughts.
Now tall as the other trees,
and dropping leaves...

Energy from ground, water 5 hours.
Rainclouds turn millstones, mealed 6 bushels.
More to drink for plants, color 7 showers,
Lights on, fridge empty, only 8 morsels...

White, the flight, plunder found in numbers.
Silver, river Potosi, still gilds the ponzi crown,
Grey, the area, the herd spending slumbers.
Gold, the cursed rock, that brings it all down.

Pop goes the bubble, crash goes the market,
Fresh manure about the forest of liberty trees....
