Today’s prompt: Write a natural and/or unnatural poem (I combined the two in a sense, though it leans in favour of the former!)
To Live Among the Leaves
I’d rather lay in the grass
On a quiet breezy night
And find meaning in the stars
Than lose my mind in city lights.
I long for pathless woods
With no boards or signs
And harsh intrusive words
That force me into straight lines.
I’d sooner get lost in the trees
And live a life unpinned
From urban demands, and fly free
Like the leaves lifted by the wind.
