Destroyers of Worlds

The End of the Our World- one cut at a time

 A flash of lightening splits a pine. It is dangerous and must come down.

Others endanger the roof. Five more down.

 As they fall, smaller trees crash, splintered and smashed.

Each woodland is a whole world to millions, birds, squirrels, ants, cicadas, frogs.

Lives snuffed out.

Across the street, people build more homes. Each a paradise for someone.

More trees are felled. ‘We have become the destroyers of worlds.’

Within a mile live many more like us. Globally, we are a plague on trees, spreading death and destruction.

 

 Everyone needs to cut, just a little.

 

We end worlds and tree by tree we end ours.
