Eclipsed

Nature eclipsed by arrogance

Like an exhibit behind a toughened glass

Presented as a special treat for the visitors

Still! It does not breathe but stares helplessly

Nature feels the abandonment

The sighs storm through the silence

Brush stroked happiness is not good enough

Only the molds appear to devour it

Painted happiness steals reality

Survives in storytelling-

The fields, blooms, and skies

All captured, but not captivating

Demonstrated foolishness 

Aggrandised euphoria of power

Disclose the details of devolution

Fooling nature and bending the truth

Undignified arrogance submerges

Reality will be resurrected in dreams

Dawn will outshine the aberrations
