nature will look after itself

years back he had reason

to smile

with his black beret

pinned on memories in tin

he lived on

then he met the owners of

a gallery

where his help was of

value

life embedded in the taste

of nourishing pickings

until his friend disappeared

to lands in the north

and shops were locked-up

loss of income all around

joie du vivre dimmed its

lights

darkness pushed its angels

of attack

aggression turned its other

face

nobody saw before

but even in the harshest

landscape

a flower would grow

between rocky outcrops

inspiring the poet for hope

nature will look after itself

and man?
