Poetry is a door to a new world for Jimmy. It gives him a place to speak his heart.
" Most of us have forgotten that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost connection with nature, it means that we have lost our connection to ourselves".
A Step Back to Yesterday
Across the valleys and down the slope
A narrow path rests as lonely old,
Chosen once more, it can only hope
That the passersby may take this gold,
Like animals love this biotope
Virgin grass and trees the mountains hold!
The many feet that merrily trod
Lost in the wind like no turning back,
Down to the city or in abroad
Not knowing what they have left in rack
Off they ventured in that lonely road
For noisy world, life is what they lack.
The mighty buildings that rise with pride
Won't be home to birds and daffodils
When time permits that they're both acquired
A cry you'll hear not a song for chills,
They'll find the way back like they are wired
Or bear a hole the world never fills.
When the many hearts are tired and sad
Look back, the aisle's clear now please be here
And sing the song you have missed so bad
As the stallions gaze and ease the fear
Watch the flowers dance just like a lad
Feel and breathe and smile don't lose a tear.
And one took it in mid-summer day
Without the dewdrops like silver gem
Oh, not the mist but the leaves that sway
Warm somebody's heart that warrants them
O'er the hills he sought the path that lay
And found the place for him 'tis the gem.
Both that day in summer melody
Sound the birds, Oh no they're not the trains
The bees buzz in search for honeybee
That they have kept from the pollen grains,
A music full of love and of glee
To heal the broken from all those pains.
To realize that he once was here
Brings the memories of joyful life
Made a way to live throughout each year
Without the sorrow that cuts a strife
Not an air that one will never bear
But a breeze soothing the nerves of life.
The narrow path saw the merriment
Accounts of the past forever live
In nature where we all are in rent
Bays, mountains, and fields will truly give
The desires of heart we all lament
Back to yesterday, connect and live
