only I

Inspired by the phrase ‘I am mad for it to be in contact with me’ taken from ‘Song of Myself (Leaves of Grass)’ by Walt Whitman.

This now comprises a part of The Linkages Project

heady stuff
the world I breathe

I take in colour
from the leaves

I take in
grey
and white

I absorb the sun

wave in the breeze

sway

heady stuff
in contact with me
an atmosphere
swooping low
all
around me

I am mad
for it

I am wild
to touch each particle
that motes
the sky
that is mine

only I
can see it

touch it

only I can
breathe it

smell the aroma
of this dayheady stuff for

only
I
