Off CyberGrid and On Nature
it rained hard
and also cold
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
his White How
it really pissed of her How’sWhites.
of being continuously poisoned
with these filthy rubbish.
I decided to get off the electronic grid
turning my hot laptop off
putting my China-cheaply-made raincoat on
and taking a long walk
from Esquimalt Lagoon
to Albert Head Lagoon
the ocean covered itself with a misty curtain
it was miserably soggy
not much could be seen
from the shore
wind tremblingly howled
of tedious waves into the cold air;
watery threads splashed at my face
the trek took longer than usual
as scattered driftwood
became too slippery

it was dark
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
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
whenever I am in need of her.
