"Let us, then, be up and doing, With a heart for any fate; Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait" -Longfellow

Thoughts on the Original Relationship

the distant motor lumbering labor 
keeps us comfy in the sun and tree. 
thinking questions old and solemn 
avoiding truth and heaviness 
in the light November holiness. 

a squirrel chases a jogger 
chasing her dreams of control and accuracy. 
the bench is cold and proclaims occurred deaths and their depths 
while the warmth of the dirt 
reminds that history starts over every morning. 

but these are human musings- 
like so many before me 
I came here to change myself back to nature 
and wound up replacing just a little bit of nature 
with myself.
