Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished – Lao Tzu

Catlins Coastal Rain Forest, South Island, New Zealand

A swipe or a click

Enough information

For a thousand years

Born through another’s

Blood, sweat and tears.

More than we could ever need

Born through another mans greed.

Abundance is one thing

Overload another

Paralyzed by choices

I run for cover.

Retreat to a space

Gentle and kind

To the arms of nature

Where I can unwind

Recoil, spring back

To a manageable setting

A life out of balance

Needs resettling

Spring back, recoil

From what you are letting.

The forest is calling

A simple life

Away from the city

Technology and strife.
