Poetry Soup | 17th July 2018


I wish to live with true abandon
experiencing things more at random
Just like the first man Adam
drinking clean water
living with nature in tandem

Garden freedom body exposed
Unconcerned with cars or clothes
Easy does it anything goes
Touch the sky
feel the sand between my toes

A happy sort of ecstatic
The natural life no plastic
My days more elastic
I could be a true original
instead of a conservative classic

For me no rules to live by
No one to ask me how and why
I could give anything a try
No fear to hold me back
Watch and see this old guy fly!
