Out in the wilds
The other day, when I stood in front of the house, alone, contemplating nature,
Its wonder and its peace and quite.
I heard the birds and felt the chill on my chin.
The trees in all their green splendor.
It was the promise of a dream. A dream so far away and so unreachable.
My eyes clouded and my heart was heavy.
I was at peace, both happy and sad at the time.
How could that be?
I felt both free and caged.
But, today I woke up with thoughts of the one thing that made sense,
And I know I want to go back to the front of the house, back to the dream,
Out there in the wilds.
