A piece of my own own work…

I was having difficulty looking at Wallace Stevens’ work so I thought I would share with you some of my own work.  This is an exteneded metaphor on jealousy.

Jealousy is a weed.

It starts off as a seed.

Implanted in the soil,

It grows and grows.

The roots grow longer

And thrive on the wholesome soil.

As the roots grow stronger,

They latch onto the Earth.

Nobody can see this weed forming

Except the Earth can feel it happening.

Finally the seedling penetrates the Earth’s shell.

It grows, develops, and thrives

Until it is clearly visible to the naked eye;

Its development is rapid,

And it slowly overpowers its environment

Until mankind takes notice.

It is plucked from its poisonous roots

And annihilated—the weed is gone.

Overtime, the cycle starts again.
