What They Do, What We Do

They feed us.
Photobucket

They feed our friends who feed us.
Photobucket

They tower over us.
Photobucket


 We snub out cigarettes in them.
Photobucket


They cover our walls.
Photobucket


We turn them into walls.

Photobucket


We use them to display wealth.
Photobucket

They are a wealth of display.
Photobucket

They smell better than we do.
Photobucket


Well, not always.
Photobucket


They remind us of far away places.
Photobucket


Yet are the very essence of home.
Photobucket


We show them off.
Photobucket


But they show us up.
Photobucket

They are our fellow beings on this small planet, and if we disrespect them, we disrespect life itself, and the miracle that is our Earth.

  3. Love this. And I'm intrigued by your depiction of a display of wealth as hedges and tightly clipped plants.
