Coming Back

We move in,
removing you,
taking advantage of you,
destroying you.

But here,
in the vast green expanse
of a concrete river,
grass and trees
retaking their place.

You fight back.
Taking over buildings,
pulling down bridges,
reclaiming what’s yours.

You inch back,
creeping into places not touched
in weeks, months, years.

Once again,
we can know
the beauty of nature.
