The Universe and My Backyard, by Ivor Steven

The Universe and My Backyard
by Ivor Steven

Outside alone, stoically I stand
Old toes gripping into cold sand
Here my lawn cover is sparse
But I see the universe in a blade of grass

Under my feet I feel our planet’s ground
Above I see a grey sky swirling around
As the sun hides behind trees and clouds
And my backyard garden grows lush and proud

Inside, I’m surrounded by a world of sound
Old fingers typing a rhyme of words yet to be found
As the studio rhythm inspires my pen to speak
And my writers haven is where dreams flow vivid and sweet
