Soon

chopkins2x3

In the
concrete jungle

Where
sky scrapers block the sun

Where
blue skies are but patches

In a
world of grey stone

My soul
thirsts and hungers

For
green trees and birdsong

For
running waters

That
flow over rocks and stones

Here in
this city

I feel
small and alone

Memory
brings me back

To
oceans deep and wild

To the
towering mountains

And emerald
valleys lush and kind

Soon, I
whisper

Soon I
will be there

Where
rivers rush to meet their mother

And
waves crash on the shore

Soon, I
promise myself

Envisioning
sand between my toes

Where no
cement unbending

Cause my
soles to hurt

My soul
too, hurts

But soon
this will be

Just
another memory

Of my
travels through this life

Soon
