Fluffy white Clouds floating in the piercing blue sky.
The very slightly visible full moon, still present with the bright rays of today’s winter sun.
Despite the presence of the sun there’s a slight breeze,
Birds of all colours and sizes gliding, or sat on branches being a harmonised choir.
Butterflies gracefully flying and the bees silently buzzing near the flower beds,
The occasional ant or two carrying some crumbs back to their nests.
A leaf slowly dancing as it descends from a twig,
Joining the gentle sway of those on the worn out path,
The green grass, untouched by those on a mission but enjoyed by a couple of kids running around laughing in such a lively manned,
Everything so peaceful and beautiful,
I can’t help but feel all fuzzy and alive, filled with happiness.
Until I realise,
No one is appreciating or seeing the beauty that surrounds them,
Heads down staring at screens, their paths mentally memorised,
A side smile from texts they’ve received, or their social media updates,
But no true happiness written on their faces.
The world would be a much happier place if everyone appreciated the simple beauty embedded in the natural world around us.
What has happened to society?
My fellow humans, when did we start blindly living?
When did we give rise to the Zombie Apocalypse?
