Magpie Tales 99

Deliver me

Release me from this tangle
Concrete canyons 
Paved paths of alien origin.

Give me back my wilderness
Forest roads
And game trails down the mountains.

If this is civilization
I want to regress
Back to my pagan roots.

You can have New York
I won't take Manhattan
I would rather be lost in New Mexico.

  3. The city can be such a barren, soul-less place. Good take on this Magpie, Jacqui.

  4. The "Green Acres" theme is playing in my head now...giggle...nice write Jacqui
