Enigma Weekend Edition: Poetry by Maggie Johnson

by Maggie Johnson

As the years go by,
Fast but quiet,
Six months to years,
Time slips away,
torn from innocent fingers,

As they grow from seeds
To the powerful trees that protect
Us from thunderous winds,
To the breathtaking flowers
that captivate any passerby,

As destruction sweeps the land,
But when help is sought after,
Heads turn the opposite way,
to look at the next interesting event,
Neighbors left to survive alone,
