The right way up

Which way is up?

They tell us to aim high to look at the stars
even when our feet are rooted to the ground

but the sky is for birds and clouds and dreaming things
tree branches catch their wisps and they fall leaves and acorns
and I am content to dig this the earth watch them grow.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. It’s true, I have escapes in the parks. You can lose sight of civilization without too much trouble, but it’s nearby in case you need to get back.
