I had forgotten how blue a real robins egg is. How the turquoise color glows, how the eggs are shaped. Because since I don’t live in the country, I never get the chance to see the real thing.
This is something that I never want to forget again.
I had forgotten what it feels like to walk on grass in your bare feet, living in the city, you don’t dare walk on the grass in the parks. This is something I want to experience again.
I have forgotten what sunsets, and sunrises look like, living in the city you only see buildings, and clouds. I want to live somewhere I can see the sun rise, and the sun set. Watch the purpling skies as they change. And predict the weather with real life, not with the TV, or the computer.
I had forgotten how much cats adapt to life in the city. Cats that live indoors may meow at the birds, but they are much safer. Cats in the country rarely return, unless they are very smart, and lucky.
I had forgotten what it feels like as a child to run through a sprinkler on the lawn, I never want to forget this again.
There is so much I have forgotten, the taste of real tomatoes, the feel of a real breeze on my sticky skin in the heat of a summers day. The distance you can see in the country, miles, and miles, without buildings that block the view…..I had forgotten. Maybe someday I will remember.
Tell me what you have forgotten, remembered, lost, and wish that you still have, now that you live where you live.
