Poem 22 “Technology and Nature”

“Technology and Nature” by Mandy Austin Cook


The tendency of Technology

is to tug of war with Nature.


so much waxes and wanes with both characters,

both are needed

both are valued.


Earth asks for balance

Technology to share fast growing knowledge

in an ever evolving faster fashion.


Earth groans with a not QUITE so gentle wisdom

Technology has her brilliance, her roughness,

but not her patience.

Ultimately they need each other.

Technology has to exist on Earth

so be as gentle with her asĀ  you can

Her nature is to love you.
