Human creations;
they may reach
towards the stars
or scrape the sky

they may go beyond
our wildest fantasies
be virtual in form
beyond the sense
of touch,
of smell and taste,

but they
do but exist
by humans
rooted in the earth
that gives them life
and food
and shelter

artificial
has its limitations
where real life
is only limited
by our imagination

and by the realities
of earth
