If only the two legged creatures in charge of the world were just as simple, just as breath-takingly beautiful as our surroundings; imagine what a wonderful world this would be.
I breathe in the serenity of my surroundings and exhale the abusive stature of man.
Under a canopy of green, I watch the clouds play hide and seek against the blue.
Basking in the panorama unfolding before me, I run.
Free as a bird, I fly down the hills and through the valley of dancing dandelions that smell of fox and deer.
The light is fading from the day, changing what was once bright and blue to shades of grey.
I can taste the cool breeze; soon, all the birds I love to chase will find their nests, leaving me to the silence and chilly air. I stand there, up on the hill, watching the life drain from another day.
Until we meet again, under the azure sky, I will listen to the soft lullaby of the birds as they sing their babies to sleep and doze to the hum of the beetles’ wings on their journey home.
