Underground, Alouette

One Single Impression #210 – Underground
My take is Alouette

***
Distant echoes fade –
glinting dull of jade,
endless search for ground is on.
Forests here remain
helpless in their plain
destiny of living on.

Gritting teeth in quiet,
bringing up a riot,
monsters chase the ghosts around.
Summon mighty friends –
they will then remain
biting lips deep underground.

    Very nice poem, Mariya, 🙂 ~~ It makes one hope for the Mighty friends.
    The rest of nature suffers when the prettier are sought after. I have a ‘token’ piece of jade, a souvineer from China. Also I have a large green rock that I call my jade rock. I have no idea what it is.

    Thank you for peeking in on my Subway ditty. The picture was from our 2006 visit to the Moscow (Russia) Metro. Did you notice the tiled floor?
