Wondering in the forest, found sweet peaches

Away from the brilliant lights, the gasoline —

Cars running down pedestrians unseen. 

Away from advertising, such harsh cries —

Selling products, various foods tendered. 

My pockets are full and I’ve my own splendour. 

I, Ulestra, have what I need supplied.    

I don’t want to bicker with faceless vendors, 

Wondering in the forest, found sweet peaches

Wonderimgin the forest, found sweet peaches

I’ve no love but for what nature she brings, 

Other days I’ll shop, enjoy frivolties. 

Those who want my peaches they come to me,

Cerise and sunrise peaches for a fee. 

My massive dog, Uyeno, stops thieves’ sting. 

Loud barks, I shiver but I’m safe rendered. 

Wondering in the forest, found sweet peaches

      1. It’s no worries Simon. I love having you drop by but I know life is busy. I mean you have kids and a fascinating job and a wife, so you’re a busy guy. I read your blog too when I can but sometimes (ad I don’t use the reader just get blogs by email) I don’t like or comment to save time. I should! So we can both do better I guess 😊 Happy Monday only 4 days left!
