I would lie down in a sunlit field, my back to the heat-drenched earth,

My face turned to the vast canopy above.

Eyes and thoughts closed down.

Conscious only of the sun’s warm caress and the slowing of my breath.

Ears tuned to the shrill calls and fluted responses of birds unnumbered.

Unseen and unnoticed by any but God and nature.

And there, immobile, I would loose my mind to the fathomless beyond.

Spirit free, at no man’s call and relieved of any burdens.

Nothing to myself or any other.

Released from the constraints of time and humanity.

Childishly free.
