after work

after all day
spent in a box
I dip my toes
into the meadow
then dive…
swim through the grass
leap over the bushes
splash back
into ferns and bramble
slow down
drink in the haze
herb robert
evening primrose
alchemilla
willowherb
as insects
buzz their drunken songs
and I am sinking back
sinking
into the wild

cave

we lurk
in our cave
all manner of
technology here
and yet
beneath it all
a primitive instinct
remains
to hunker down
close curtains
block out
the rain
and huddle
together
for sweet warmth
