When It All Seems Ruined – Poem for a Fiction Challenge

Time again for Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers So grateful to PJ for hosting this weekly challenge.  Please follow little froggy for more stories.

Here is this week’s photograph and a poem:

When It All Seems Ruined

We cannot fight the wrath
of human nature
nor escape its outcome
nor wonder its destruction
stumbled upon
years from now
when even ancient cypress trees have died.
I would die with them
but choose to live in the ruins
though often
these days
I’m left wondering.
