When in the void,
I wonder where my soul is.
But venturing into crimson leaves,
or when I walk along a dirt track,
I find it amid nature’s gentle tides.
Peace floods my bones to wash them clean.
Though, when I step indoors,
the screen flickers with politics and disease:
My soul doesn’t know these things.
It shuts them out where they belong.
Wake up, wake up!
I say to my sleeping core.
See the real world go on without you.
But my soul refuses to register the complaint,
It prefers to rest beneath a tree,
or rest by the riverbank.
it melts with the tide and listens to Earth’s music.
