Green Spaces

Let me escape to the green spaces 


Where the air is clean and fresh

and the sweet scent of the earth fills my senses

I breathe deep, filling my lungs with life-giving oxygen 


Where I can hear the wind rustling through the leaves of the trees

such a soothing sound

it’s almost a lullaby except for how invigorating it is


Where the sunlight flickers down through the canopy above 

 and a playful dance between shadow and light ensues on the forest floor

it’s hypnotic and memorizing, I join in


Where everything is vibrant and so alive

every organism living and working together, existing in perfect symbiosis 

I marvel at the wonder of nature, of its continual cycle of birth, death, and rebirth


Where nothing is wasted or taken for granted


Where there is no hate or division

or politics  


 Let me escape to the green spaces
