Urban sprawl

green pinecone on black asphalt

A field of asphalt stretching for miles
Pungent scent of hot petroleum in stagnant summer air
Unwelcoming, harsh and unyielding

An oasis of green, lost upon the black pitch
Faint perfume, clean, crisp balsam
Reminiscent of fall, sweet and soothing

  1. I smelled summer roads, the tar invading my nose.
    Makes you ache for the little things, the small signs of green.
