Time Wonders

Oh, how amazed I am
upon the broken skyline
These giants go up every day
obscuring the sunlight

Huge caterpillars roam
digging up the land
But yesterday, oh yesterday
There were no caterpillars or cats

Who inspired your thoughts?
For the skyline was not broken then
Man was infant in his deeds
And in need of knowledge

In the land of the Celts
No metal dinosaurs roamed
Yet quarry traveled far and wide
The stones remain unmoved today

In the land of the Pharaoh
The skyline was broken
Stone behemoths arise
When and how, no body knows!

we get our ideas from nature, didn't you know that. I called to us we had no choice but to dig, and climb and build and grow.

Man has been building ever since the "Tower Of Babel". It seems like an obsession. I get the feeling that this poem was inspired by something you saw, a sudden inpulse to write down your feelings before they escaped.
