From tiny beginnings to oceans I discovered the world in words


Take me from sink, fridge and oven,

let me eat blackberries straight from the branch,

from screens and canned music

so I can hear birds sing while bees hum,

from air conditioning, heating and showers,

let sun be my warmth and raindrops refresh me,

from neon, flouresence and LEDs,

the moon and stars will light up my night,

from bricks, concrete, timber and tiles,

trees are my walls and sky my roof.

Take me from carpets, tarmac and gravel,

let me walk upon earth;

  1. Thanks for the like Stephanie.

  2. Big smile. Reminds me that I want to walk a few of the local trails here…
    But for the bugs that like to bite me. And the plants that in their defense, irritate my skin.
    Perhaps if we were all allowed to roam without shoes we would be more acclimated to and understanding of ‘nature’ 🙂

  3. Thanks for the comment Jules. It was one of those ‘I’m sure life could be simpler’ moments.
