My Growing Interest Is in a Forest

 
 
 

My Growing Interest Is in a Forest

What piques your interest
When you walk into a forest?
Its interrelated patterns, aura?
Its processes, fauna and flora?
Its fertility and biodiversity?
Its leafiness, calm and novelty?

I see diverse plants like I detect our cultures
For forests are home to 80% of land creatures
Plants cover 31% of the world's total land area
Trees push out pollutants, give us scent hysteria
Greenery ably absorbs greenhouse gas emissions
What a slight, chaotic tree cutters are temptations!

Did I mention that a billion souls depend on forests
For their incomes and daily subsistence requests?
40% of global renewable energy is derived from
Forests. Where do medicinal properties come from?
Talk of wood, solar, hydroelectric and wind power,
Of leaky, teary trees; revel and feel the flood devour!
