Of rocks, trees and aliens

Prompt  ….

Thank you  Pamela S. Canepa for this week’s photo prompt.

Long time ago I read a SF tale about visitors from a distant planet. They came to Earth and their spaceship lands in the middle of a forest. The aliens talked with the trees of the forest, and then leave – happy that the people care for their environment.

This prompt makes me wonder – what if they had talked with the rocks too. I am sure they would have left highly dissatisfied. The rocks would have told them how their population was fast dwindling; how they are carted off to be crushed and used as sand for unbridled construction activities. They would have told how in their absence the trees lose roots and how the water from upper-ranges drowns the forest during monsoon. They would also tell how a multitude of small creatures that help in maintaining the eco-balance are becoming extinct …..

I also wonder what the aliens would have done if they had talked to the rocks.

  1. A lovely whimsical story, yet I can see the aliens asking what were we thinking doing so much damage to our world.

I love arguments
