Far From The Maddening Crowds

All the lines and the bustle,

Take a backseat out here

Car horns and voices,

Are replaced with,

Chirps and squawks

Thousands of shuffling feet,

Give way to flapping wings,

Slithers and jumps

Smog and stagnation,

Is replaced with breezes and sunshine

Life slows back here

Life looks smaller, simpler

The world doesn’t seem so big or scary,

And problems get shoved,

Into the forgotten spaces of the mind

Back here is ‘away’

Back here is ‘vacation’

Out here, far from the maddening crowds,

Is where I feel most at home
