My thoughts

Life in the City

The darkened clouds casts a mean shadow

at the land-dwellers below,

the laborers, the aristocrats

the religious and even the pagans.

This mean, sombre and sickly sky

shows no mercy to the people it hovers over,

men and women in the city

running forwards and backwards

 like the shrilling banshee,

or a social experiment gone wrong

to jobs that neither pay enough

but enough that they can live

have the land-dwellers below,

trudging like zombies

slowly and slowly

each in their own world,

and each in their own dreams.

 

The darkened clouds casts a mean shadow

at the land-dwellers below,

the laborers, the aristocrats

the religious and even the pagans.

 

Nature can be defined and expressed

like an enormous walrus

or better yet a slithering snake

constantly on the move

and with the self-belief,

to always rise with the sun.

To witness and feel the morning breeze

to capture its innocence,

and to hymn with the birds above.

 

People reflect nature

in all its glory

whether it is above or below.

The sky above

clear as a beautiful baby’s face

smiling down on the land-dwellers below,

the laborers, the aristocrats

the religious and even the pagans.
