Without earth of our own and all the public closed,
I have such gratitude for our balcony – our small piece of outdoor paradise.
This haven is one of fresh air and chirping birds and rustling leaves in trees.
I sit where the green things grow, suspended above the urban sprawl, and I hope.
Things seem much less bleak with the wind in your hair, listening to what is alive.
"Urban Oasis", C Cameron.
