In the wild there is uncertainty,
Every sense alert
To the slightest sound and vibration
within the landscape.
Eyes must observe the smallest movement
And brushing against the webs
Should alert us to unseen threats.
Heightened awareness offers
Intensity of emotion
Appreciation of the glory
Of creation and a sense of awe;
A revelling in the untamed nature of our surroundings.
But what should happen if we tame our environs
Will the tension and the pleasure
Will that tingling freedom and energy
That exciting mystery of difference
become a deference
To our culture; our way; the norm?
I’m for the untamed; the WILD!
