Unearthly green glow of wooded wilderness.
Overgrown grass glistening in dawn dew.
Crisp cold air dispels the drowsiness,
Making me think of yesterday-
Exploding skyscrapers frozen in flight,
Rumbling railways n' rampant roads,
Clamoring clubs running into the night,
Taxing trucks dropping lumbering loads-
Busy boots always clacking on tidy tiles-
Smothering smog, its endless embrace,
Vrooming vans, brringing bicycles,
Racing along at lightning pace.
First-class flowers are artfully arranged-
Synthetic suns shining on bulky books,
It's a roller coaster ride, never unchanged-
Rolling, crashing, sliding, swerving.
A distant, dainty bird chitters-
so slow, so still.
At home, warm fire flickers,
Free from assignments to fulfill.
