City Nature

Many people say that the city is lifeless;
totally void of nature.

But they are wrong.
Look around.

Green lives 
in the sidewalk cracks;
birds navigate the maze
of buildings;
insects create their tiny world 
along the ground.

Look again.

Realize how adaptive
nature is
to the environment;
how resilient it can be.

Let us remember this.

The city is just
another ecosystem,
as diverse
as any other.
