Early Morning Walk

The door opened
like a gateway
to nirvana
ravaging the dark
with outside of light

Sun glaring down
like a stern parent
disapproving the showering
of such grace
on undeserving kids

Chirping birds
barking dogs
feral cats
on the prowl

All a symphony
of morning glory
on the summer day
from heaven

Trek along 
winding roads
as nature opens up
before us

Our bodies 
seat to unlock
from restrictive
digital positions

No technology here
Microchips cannot 
replace the unrivaled
pleasure that 
nature offers
the body, spirit
and soul
