Pay Attention

There are cycles for water and carbon and people
The scent of a rose or tomato’s green sepal
Skyscrapers, ice-scrapers, boats cars and trains
Waterfalls, forests and wide open plains
All the machines that we humans have made
The heavens each day where the sunset’s displayed
Land-snails or sea-snails or sails on turbines
Sails on the boats crossing oceans’ confines
From ants to plants to elephants
The world keeps spinning its living dance
And each day though I oft digress
I should pay heed to its wonderfulness.

    Yeah? That's awesome. Cos it was almost completely accidental, and then once I caught the rhythm of it, the rest poured out
