i. To live on a day like this
They all watch in awe as the great thing rises on a pillar of steam,
Hissing and puffing, no fear in what we have accomplished.
They call it a modern marvel of man, fantastically fascinating,
It sails the sky, bringing beauty to more than just the horizon.
ii. A simple process
Nature's constructs line every lush field and flowing stream,
We inhale as they exhale, and that is life.
With every careful step I take,
I check the marks my footsteps make.
I know, you know that's what I do,
You know, I know you do it to.
iv. To learn
For two years we stared into each other's imaginary worlds,
Always on the borders, together, alone and awkward.
For fear of regret we never trespassed,
Until that one single night, I dared step into a dream.
Sadly it was not what I had imagined.
Right here I work the fertile ground,
Within its fruits I often found,
Integrity is all you need;
To feed us all with just one seed.
When the sun set behind the endless scene of trees and hills,
When the moon took up the torch and lit the valleys in blue and grey.
When the creatures crawled out from hidden homes,
When we watched it all happen, just warm enough smile,
Happiness was effortless.
