Nature Jumps the Fence

~ Art & Poetry by, Elizabeth Levine 

Life emerges in the space that you denied;

The wilderness where thoughts run wild

And nature jumps the fence …

Where the deepest banks erode with pride

And experience carves their path,

As the colors bleed outside your lines

Where everything makes sense.

There’s a sketch upon the table,

Evolving with every stroke.

Blurring the lines

Between right and wrong,

Where freedom shatters yokes.

Be wary of the quiet ones

Whose voices have not been heard;

The ones you bound in your mind

As the wayward followers,

Salivating to your every word.

You drew the boundaries

In which we were to roam;

A place we can’t fathom

And a place we won’t call home.

There’s a sketch that lies upon the table,

Whose beauty has not been bound

By barbed wire and the snares

Set to drown us under,

Where freedom can’t be found.

Life emerges in the space that you denied;

The wilderness where thoughts run wild

And nature jumps the fence …

Where the deepest banks erode with pride

And experience carves their path,

As the colors bleed outside your lines,

Where everything makes sense.
