One Poem by Felix Purat

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Generational Divide Rumination

So much changes with
Each drifting leaf
Organic plant matter
A page of reassembled factoids
All it really takes to switch
              the power on
And electrify a generation

The old timers look away
Unbridgeable is their experience
The ultimate social divide is set in stone
Where otherwise organic matter rules
As we see with the leaf in the garden
So innocent and caught in the wind
