Off CyberGrid and On Nature 

Off CyberGrid and On Nature 

it rained hard
and also cold
outside
today
nonetheless I could feel
the intense heat from the raging blaze.
“Fire and Fury” has just started burning down
my southern neighbor’s home-troublesome-home
it has swept through the big dome
of
his White How
it really pissed of her How’sWhites.

so
fed up
of being continuously poisoned
with these filthy rubbish.
I decided to get off the electronic grid
by
turning my hot laptop off
putting my China-cheaply-made raincoat on
and taking a long walk
along
the beach
from Esquimalt Lagoon
to Albert Head Lagoon

the ocean covered itself with a misty curtain
it was miserably soggy
not much could be seen
afar
from the shore

wind tremblingly howled
it
threw
furious sound
of tedious waves into the cold air;
watery threads splashed at my face

the trek took longer than usual
as scattered driftwood
on
sand
and pebbles
became too slippery
very tricky to navigate through.

it was dark
by
the time
I got back to my vehicle
I was mushy like a wet blanket
still, the heat kept radiating throughout my entire body.
I felt fresh
anew

Nature is my Caring Mother
who carefully puts my life back into perspective
she tells me how I’m supposed to live
SHE is always
with
me
whenever I am in need of her.
