The Quest – A #Tanka

to seek out secretes
nature many it has hid
if found wont survive
mans wilful distillation
the quest is denied
the arduous quest
for millennia followed
shamed and many blamed
peace still lost in angry feuds
under blood covered fields
oceans relentless
now global warming aiding
erosion rife
the quest for land succeeding
claimed back some say stolen
quest for happiness
sadly a human plight
power of reason
in nature freedom serves
birds singing jaunty songs
