Green Hills Blur Reality


Green temples polluted the horizon
But she couldn’t escape their all-knowing eyes
They knew everything there was to know
About nature’s grand plan
And the likelihood of majesty surviving to fight another minute

She floated alongside them
Wanting them to disappear and give way to a plain
She just wanted flatness

The hills only grew taller though
Stopping just short of mountain status
Golden nuggets surrounding their bases
Were the only things that redeemed their existence

She collected a few clusters of the golden treasure
Sometimes they flickered, as if they were on a timer
There was no point in chasing after them, then
Might as well watch them flicker

So, she waited until the green hills started to blur everything around them
Then, after a period of quiet, she left for greener pastures
