The sun’s broken free from it shroud in the clouds
It’s rays of golden light cascading down on me through my window
The warmth gently caressing my skin and it’s godly goodness energizing my soul
Giving me strength, compassion and hope for yet another day

The pollution is lifting so I can breathe; my lungs filling with air like an air balloon rising
My heart pumping ever stronger with a beat, beat, beat
Fueling my body, every organ, every muscle, every cell invigorated with gods blessings
Waking me up and bringing me to my senses

My eyes are opening like a flower to a Bee, looking, really looking to see what surrounds me,
Buildings rising like a Phoenix from the ashes, mountains of dust filling the air, with a clanging and thumping of metal on metal
Cranes lifting higher and higher, rising up to the heavens making way for ivory towers of ‘Face’ in the sky
Whilst bulldozers are clearing away the memories of China past and history from another day

People passing, chasing their dreams, some walking some running, car after car like ants in a line
Heads down, no eye contact, texting away, talking aloud and shouting ’Wei’
No time for smiles the rush hour is on
Horns blaring, there’s no time to wait, bicycles jostling like horses at the starters gate

Progress bringing wealth and gadgets galore, Pizza Hut, KFC, McDonald’s and a Walmart store
Houses and cars, the wedding, One baby and more
Progress is here to stay, trapping us in for one more day
I sigh, I frown and I’m sad to say; progress is here but its wiped all the smiles away

Namaste with Love
Always
Mark
