A hole in the fence is a gateway to adventure.




Someone has broken through the fence!

made a wormhole
into a restricted zone

-- a forest reserve to be kept
preserved from curious hikers
        who only loved to walk
        the soft native earth.

They'd brush aside thorny vines that catch them,
rush through blades of grass that cut them

       just to find a way to get lost

in a patch they call 'nature',

       to breathe in the green

and bathe their heads
under the silver sunbeams
falling through the canopy.
