Have you ever listened to nature?
Not sat in silence, daydreaming.
Not walking through, admiring.
Not distracted by handheld technology.
I mean really listened attentively.
It strikes me how harmonic it is,
the rise and fall; the unison and the grace.
Carefully planned out and ordered yet wildly unpredictable.
People worry about getting lost.
About straying too far from the path and finding themselves
somewhere where they are unfamiliar.
They are already lost; so far gone along
the path of bright lights
that the yhave forgotten where they want to go.
Nature and I have a meeting room
where we can converse uninterrupted.
She is compassionate to my industrial
and smogginess of mechaincal mind
and so I am careful to do my part
to ensure she doesnt befall the same fate.
I met her this week but I turned up late.
