The wildness,
It is around us,
It is upon us,
But we'll have to keep wilderness real
To keep wilderness real

At Home

Homework, studying, reading, eating dinner, watch bits of television


Quietness, stillness, darkness, mass shadow of giant sequoia, chilly soothing sensation

Deep breaths, HHHHHhhhhhhh,
Fresh pine tree, red wood, and dripping snow,
Oatmeal sweeting tang.
Warming body soothing in vines
Snow brighten the flesh of the soil,
Freedom of wildness
Freedom of Wilderness
I am Free


In few time
I am alone
Not just alone,
I am alone,
In life time is limited,
There will always be changes,
But this life of mine
Seem never able to change.
But here I am in Yosemite
This place is surely special
