Pine and eucalyptus trees

There was a time
when all I saw was beauty
all I wanted was beauty
I would get lost in the fields around us
and leave the people behind
lost in music, and in wonder

There was a time when all that there was was good
and light, and truth

There was a time, if such a time there was
when blinded to the truth
my truth would be better than yours
better than anybody’s

a truth made of animals and friendly forests
beautiful hills and scented grass
close-ups of earth worms and flowers

there was silence, the warm breath of a llama
silence in the sweet eyes of my dog
silence in the gentle purrs of the cats

there was silence and in the silence there was good
quiet people had quiet thoughts and they were good
silence and water and sunshine and trees
endless trees to climb and deserts to contain my thoughts
and bring them back pure and non-existent

there was a time when all was quiet and there was a time
when I thought that time would come again.
