You

I believe nature to be the ultimate solace,

The most divine thing this planet’s got left

Right now

I am standing cliffside, looking over a place I claim to “belong to”

Mountains with soft peaks

smoothed like wet clay under God’s fingertips

Yet,

I can only think of you

Human connection

Love

is the one thing that limits me from enjoying the earth

Why would a person formed from dust matter in a world made of treetops

You and I matter so little

Yet,

In this moment,

we matter so much.
