Yesterday was World Earth Day.
I hear you say?
On the flip side, it might just stir some grey matter,
Or warm the cockles of your heart a wee bit.
Does your tossed coin land tail side up?
Does your toast always land jam side down?
Choices and reactions,
Reactions and choices.
They hit us at mac speed like the encircling jet stream,
Smack in the face.
Yesterday I made a choice.
I sat on a warm, dandelion dotted, grassy bank
Watching the brilliant, dazzling, mini suns
Turn their heads in homage and acknowledgement
To the One gigantic, radiant, illuminating, fireball.
Listening to a steady buzzing of nectar/ pollen gatherers,
Alighting from flower to flower, restocking pollen baskets,
Their hypnotic drone-like chant carrying on the breeze.
Touching and running fingers through soft, cotton-wool moss
While a sweet, comforting smell of incense hung heavily,
Stirring up fond childhood memories from days now past.
Tantalising, mouthwatering aroma of freshly baked biscuits
From the world famous bakery behind me.
On the other hand…
I could have waited in the garage while the car tyre puncture was being fixed!
