This Backwards Life

The glittery materials
Prove useful distractions
From breeze blown trees

Waves flow through tall grass,
Cascading across sleeping hillsides.
And morning dew clings to petal-tips.

Enthusiastic birds each cast their voice
Into a canyon's ambiance.
As if to savor the sublime acoustics.

And here we are, fretting about celebrity culture and the latest expensive products.

Good use of imagery in this one creates a pleasant word picture. The contrast between electronic culture and nature is telling. Good work.
