Urban Oasis


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.
