Natural Selection

by Libby Meador

Where pondside edges dissipate
Into molecules of calm and space
And restful alertness supercedes 
The weariness of modern dramas
Natural selection
Ebbs and flows in every breath
And this is living.

Where edges are defined
Building towers to the skies
Sidewalks crack the bottom line
And from this ecological niche
A dandelion thrives
Reminding passersby
That nature's not a fragile mother.
