Boundaries shift losing their edges
Eyes strain to see ahead
All points of reference disappear
Under a smoky bed.
Movement slows, cars are nose to tail
Break lights blink off and on
Headlights beam as if they’re searching
Sucked in trails, there, then gone.
All is grey, swirling dense and cloying
Changing whole perspectives
Horns beep out in great frustration
The fog ignores and drifts.
Nothing looks the same anymore
Blind is the traveller now
All reason and logic come undone
This is nature’s power.
Our instincts for time and space is lost
With ancestors long gone
Clocks and technology run our lives
Without them we are done.
Man made machines point the way for us
Our brains are dull as fog
Hooked and wired to get our daily dose
Just another dim cog.
Take away the safety nets and breathe
Find your natural rhythm
Nature gave you all you’d ever need
Become nature driven.
Undo the restraints that keep you bound
This life belongs to you
But only you can change the pathway
Do what you need to do.
