"Somebody said that it couldn't be done, but he with a chuckle replied that maybe it couldn't [and maybe it shouldn't], but he wouldn't be the one to say so until he tired" - Edgar Albert Guest

To those who look at the cities gray stare
burned into the ground and think -
We have conquered nature.
You have lived too much during the day.

For anyone who steps out of our save, little, warm shells
of modern construction,
-Into a winter's cool night,
-Into summer's caressing,
star-filled blackness,
-And sees how we cannot see past the green, green inked in grass of this shadow land.
-And hears the wind
wrapping through the trees,
wrapping around you.
has run away.
Too small in the comparison,
Too easily snuffed

Wrote this when I was outside around 2 a.m - my favorite time of night and really I have to say night time is so utterly beautiful and under appreciated. Any one want to be nocturnal or is that just me? :)
