Amazonia by Shea Walsh


A world almost beyond belief
The interconnecting evolution
Of plants
Their strategy of survival
Adaptions defences evolving
Out of their will to persist
Some living almost purely on air
Connecting to trees
Challenging trees to
Bear their accumulating weight
Challenging our ability to
Comprehend the intricacies of
Their structures their magnificent mysteries
Coquettishly sometimes brazenly luring insects
And flies to assist them with pollination
Through shapes and styles and floral wiles
Enticing perfumed aromas
Putrid stench attract certain others
How easy do you think it is
To find a moth with a foot long tongue
This is a mere indication of what
We lose in our tragedy of abuse
