Strolling along the dusty streets,
Humming an old melody
My eyes wandered to the lush green giants around me.
A thousand shades of green I saw
Beckoning to feel them
A sweet chirp compelled me to run deep within
The flash of colours I saw
Different shapes, different chirps, yet they cast the same spell on me.
They flew from one green giant to another
Wings, magnificent and splendid,
A smaller winged creature, abundant in beauty, circled around me.
Then beckoned me to a different direction
I followed her spellbound, only to discover,
A vast expanse of multitudes of colours
Fragrant, beautiful, fascinating, dazzling.
I walked among them, feeling them through my fingertips
With each touch, a current of pleasure flowed through my veins
I knew at that moment, I was in love
Nature was my beloved.
