I Stood There

I stood there

In a patch of dirt

That

somehow supported

maize stalks

and

side walks.

Both preceding

hues of green

in the form of tress

That gathered

in patches we call forests

,

Each fathered

By birds, herds

and

swarms

of bees

floating in a breeze

Broken only  by  the hills.

Hills

that

rolled

into

the

Sunrise

.

I stood there

 

thinking about how this isn’t everywhere

Thinking.

Then stopping

myself because

this was

beautiful.

Breathing in the untouched air

marveling in its tranquility

and its innocence.

 

I stood there,

 

in a patch of dirt,

that somehow supported maize stalks and side walks.
